Romance in the Air!

Most married couples, on the occasion of their wedding anniversary, dress up in romantic fancy clothes and go out for a romantic dinner. Or they travel to a romantic location for a romantic weekend.

I, however, was whisked away for an utterly romantic...

























...camel ride!

As you can see, a lovely time was had by all, although I now have a profound understanding of why some folks in the Middle East often seem a bit crotchety. Getting up and down on a camel is akin to enduring an earthquake, but not quite as smooth.

Happy Anniversary, Dahling! And thanks for 23 years of romance! And adventure!

Happy Anniversary!

You look quite happy up on those camels. I'm a bit disappointed you didn't dress up in full desert gear for the occasion, but it looks like you're having a great time anyway.

I rode a camel in Egypt at the great pyramids. I did not think I wanted to do such a thing but my friend was insistant.

I loved it. It was one of the best things I did in Africa. And the photos I got from waaay up on a camel, at a distance from the pyramids? Wonderful.
