This photo takes your breath, puts a camel on your throat, one lying on all of us during all these years: rough and bold. Its harness has roots in this land. It seem unstoppable: not because it gallops, rather because it lumbers and because it has saved water for years. Its nature provides it with this opportunity.

This is what crossed my mind between the moment I saw the photo and the moment I read the description when a whole different story began:

El Alamein

A region in Egypt where the allies forces succeeded in stopping the Germans.
