Each week, XingfuMama hosts her “Pull Up A Seat” challenge.
I’ve perched myself on many a makeshift seat over the years. This friendly elephant in Zimbabwe seemed to think it was really funny to have me sitting on his knee.
In Egypt, it was straight off the flight from South Africa and onto a camel. Our guide insisted that we do this before he would take us to our hotel to freshen up a bit.
It was quite a bumpy ride and our camel was a bit frisky, so I was relieved when we were back at ground level and I could slide off of my seat. It’s now a distant memory but I can still remember that searing heat and the pungent camel smell. (Camels pee down their legs to cool themselves off.)
This was a far more civilised mode of Egyptian transport; a horse drawn carriage with a comfortable seat for my sit-upon.
If you have any photos of seating you’ve encountered on your travels, just head over to XingfuMama’s ‘Pull Up A Seat Challenge’.
Hope you’re all having a great Easter weekend.
