Trivia

A camel can lose up to 30 percent of its body weight in perspiration and continue to cross the desert. A human would die of heat shock after sweating away only 12 percent of his body weight.

Speaking of camels...

My parents have rented cabins, or sailed into, this San Juan island for years and years. It has its own resident camel. I'll never forget the first time I saw Mona. Such an unexpected sight!
