Yet it was too late to refuse their offer, for I had already told them that I was going to EnNahud, and to change my mind now would be to insult their hospitality. I had no choice but to go along with them and hope the stories were fallacious. We drank water from ’Ali’s waterskin, sucking the tarry liquid from the mouth of the vessel. Then the Hamar stood on my camel’s legs as I mounted. We rode together towards 37 the melting sun which was already fading into the pale soupmixture of the evening sky.
Almost simultaneously, about a quarter of a mile away to the south in a bowl of dead ground, I spotted the figures of two camel-riders, heading west. I jumped up and down, frantically, shouting, ‘Hai, the camel! ’ gesturing with my hands to where he stood, calmly chewing leaves. For a few moments the riders seemed not to have heard. Then the second of the two figures wheeled around lazily, like a battleship, setting off at a slow trot towards my animal. His companion turned even more slowly and shambled off after him.

I tugged harder, and he merely shifted about, nibbling at tufts of grass and shrubs, as if nonchalantly unconcerned about my presence on his back. After swearing profusely, still without result, I jumped from his back, and found myself suddenly covered in viciously sharp thistles, which embedded themselves in my arms, legs, and face. The faster I tried to extract them, the more they stuck: they worked themselves inside my trousers, up the sleeves of my shirt and even into my lips and ears.
