ET001 - Grazing With Camels

By Eric Trules

Israel, 1999. Trules ventures south from Jerusalem, crossing the Israeli-Egyptian border at Eilot. He makes camp at "Ras Es Satan", Head of the Devil, sleeping in a primitive "chousha", just feet from the Red Sea. He swims with the neon-lit fishes and organizes a 2 day camel safari, overnight into the Sinai Desert, home of Moses, Joshua, and the first tribes of Israel. His guide is swarthy Bedouin, Adnan, and after learning how to make a camel both run and sit, Trules presses on into the harsh and beautiful desert. Is that a mirage he sees? Or an oasis? He ruminates over the price we have paid for civilization's comforts, wondering if we have lost our respect for nature, and our connection with our own humanity. The episode ends with Trules' own remedy for peace in the Middle East. For full show notes for this episode visit:
