Wonderful photo, just wonderful. I rather like canmels. Good proverbs too. I leave you with this one -

I count 10 camels... collectively does that qualify as a half-pack of camels? ;-)

Yes, I guess it does. Btw in a recent tobacco industry survey found that 98% of all men that use camels still prefer women.

I love the way the environment influences quotes.

Haha, my mother has told me several times about tying the camel though we don't have camels here. But I guess religion does influence the way we use quotes too.
