Follow-up on Camels

So Bill sent me an email with a list of camel stories, thanks to his extensive database. (He indexes folktale books.) There are lots I don't know, but two on his list were in books I have. One of those is a book he borrowed from me to index, in fact. (It's a collection of Mongolian folktales that I bought in the state department store in Ulan Baator.)

It really should have occurred to me that Idries Shah would have some camel stories, too. While I'm at it, I should also see if there are any camel-related stories among the Tales of Joha, since those are closely related to the Nasruddin stories.

I should probably also time the other stuff I plan to use so I don't have camels dominate the whole program. I just wanted to show off my lovely camel puppet.
