Suddenly it is summer, and it is time to move the geranium jungle out of the living room and out on the deck. Hiding in plain sight is one of my two camel saddles. With Egypt now in the news, my two camel saddles and their history came to mind.
Yes, my Aunt Elvira and I rode camels around the pyramids in Egypt during our big trip in 1953. Neither one of us knew what a camel saddle looked like, but there are the usual tourist photos of us riding these camels.
