I am nomad. Hear me roar.

Did I ever tell you about the time I got sneezed on by a camel?

It was decidedly green. I'm usually a big fan of green, in fact it's my favourite colour, but in this particular instance I could have done without it. It was disgusting, and foul, and mortifying, and all happened on the camel tour I took when I was in The Red Centre earlier in the year.

This was the camel.
I had never ridden a camel before, and was quite excited at the prospect, pre-sneezing anyway. Post sneeze, the camels, despite their pretty eyes and long lashes seemed to lose a little bit of their charm. Even though, one of them, according to the tour guide, was a world record holder and another was a star of the silver screen, having acted alongside Hugh Jackman in "Australia". After the incident of the sneeze they just lacked the same lustre.

Still, the sunset was beautiful.
