My name is Allison Carter and I was in Egypt for fifteen days I was really psyched about doing a camel ride- I've always loved camels- the'yre just really funny looking, I guess

But they're really kind of "ugly-cute" I couldn't wait to take a ride on a camel We actually got to do it in an amazing setting It was a ride up to the Monastery of St Simeon

So we get off a boat, take a motorboat across to the other bank of the Nile and there are all these camles there So I climb on my camel and I've got this little camel boy with me to make sure the camel doesn't kill me I ask what the camel's name is My camel's name is "Titanic," which he seemed to think was great because the camel was very tall, as far as camels go I didn't seem to think it was such a great thing

We ride to the top the top of the hill and there's this monastery from the twelfth century, so, of course, it's pretty new, relatively speaking- in Egpyt It's amazing to be up there and see the landscape of the Nile beneath you and this ancient monastery Then afterwards, I actually got to ride the camel a longer distance across this high plateau over to a small Nubian village where we had tea with a local family It was a really cool "Lawrence of Arabia" experience
