Countryside Traffic Jam

Riding on the canal-side trails in Giza is wonderfully educational. On this occasion there were three of us on horseback who found ourselves behind a trio of camels being led out to a grove of palms in the fields where they would be loaded with trimmed palm branches to be carried out to the villages where the branches would be processed into palm boxes or furniture, fiber ropes, and woven mats. The camels didn't seem any too happy with the equine tailgaters.
