Maryann of Arabia


I bought some camel wool mittens this last weekend at St. Mark's holiday bazaar. I loved the smell of them because they reminded me of riding a camel in Tibet. I asked my trivia friends to smell the mittens and guess what animal wool it was. The consensus: "sheep ass."

The ride was a dream come true for me, as I had always wanted to ride a camel, especially after seeing Lawrence of Arabia:

I also saw a very touching film called The Story of the Weeping Camel, which was a National Geographic production in Mongolia. After you watch it it's hard not to think that camels are some of the coolest animals ever to roam the planet.

So, come away with me to memory island...
