Day 238 – The Falafel Fandango

17th May 2012

The second of our two days with Ammr went much as the first, in just a few hours we, or rather, Ammr and his team, treated over seventy horses, placated at least three growling owners, one of whom was in his vest and boxer shorts; and we’d like to think, educated one or two of those men who turned up, steed in hand.

The downside was that the previous day’s falafels had reared their ugly heads, Laura was descending into a mildly feverish, heavily gut grumbling, nausea as the day went by. A very nice owner offered us both tea and pepsi but neither would help. I wasn’t feeling tip top, but for me the best was yet to come.

It had been a fascinating two days, and whilst we were of no real use to Ammr, he was of immense interest to us. We exchanged numbers and wished him well before leaving.

Back at the campsite we upgraded out ‘tented accomodation’ to a room where we were able to shuffle back and forth from the toilet, self medicating and, in between, praying for an end to the falafel fandango we were performing in our compact and ensuite room.
