I like lots of animals,domestic and otherwise.
I like dogs,providing they are not too big and slobber all over me.
I think I like cats more, so elusive.
But my absolute favourite animal is a CAMEL.
It certainly isn’t my favourite to ride, and they usually smell pretty bad. But they are so haughty and disdainful, ever-knowing and with a look wiser and older than the desert itself.
I thought I was probably the only person of non Bedouin blood to love camels, but I read today that the Swiss rock and blues singer Vera Kaa loves them too.
“I find them overwhelmingly elegant.” she says “So arrogant and zickig (Difficult to translate,-could be used to describe a certain U.S hoteliers daughter) can no Diva in the world look down her nose”
Oh I do so agree.
