August Banner

It’s nasty hot here in Kansas, so images of parched, barren desert sprang to mind when considering this month’s banner. I was delighted to find something both beautiful and appropriate in this picture of a camel train traversing the dunes near Bab al Shams in Dubai. Makes me feel a little bit cooler just looking at it.

This camel train, like the steel and steam trains usually featured on our banner, runs on subjective time, mostly because it’s difficult to make a camel go any faster than it wants to.

You can find the original image at Bushbaby Travel, purveyors of exotic excursions to South Africa, the Indian Ocean, the Middle East, and North Africa.
