I was on the beach yesterday (I know, hard work that Peace Corps), and there were your usual camel ride troop of camels but being a Tuesday there were not many customers so the camels were relaxing. Normally, when a camel (the animal) relaxes, it rests on its knees so as to get up faster (having been domesticated for so long, my guess is that camels just know they will eventually need to get up). However, when I turned to look at troop again, there was one that had just flopped on its side and I immediately felt it embodied myself and other alumni and current students of my alma mater Connecticut College in so many ways. I snapped the picture with my camera phone, and whipped up a little graphic for it. Hope you enjoy. Go Camels! Miss you all!
