18th January cont. - Hezekiel looks a bit more intelligentThey have to be accustomed to go without water for chosen periods, up to 10 days is possible but it takes some weeks of training. Everyone advised that it was unwise to ride a camel more than four miles the first day. The rider needed to train too.
We got news today that the donkey waggon had broken down about 30 miles away.
It seems now that we will be going out to Titus's place on our own book, Titus being in my opinion a bit of a fool. Hezekiel who will be our camel boy now looks a bit more intelligent.
