Camels on the Roadway!
My driving license was unfortunately withdrawn a few weeks ago due to breaking the speed limits, so I decided to drive all the way to Maadi through the -trafficked but safe without “legan”- Corniche and “Salah Salem” path rather than “Al-Qatameya” path, until I get my license back. On my way I pass by a place called “3ein el seera”; where a very strange incident happened a couple of times last Sunday and Monday.
It was almost 6:30 p.m.; the traffic is usually very low at this timing, so I was really driving fast -as usual- when all of a sudden I saw CAMELS.
YES! Believe it or not…!
Call it a caravan, a flock or even a train of CAMELS walking on the pavement, filling the roadway, and causing a traffic jam.
They were everywhere that the cars had to stop until they moved to the right a little to clear a narrow lane in the left that can hardly pass a car, in a scene that you can only see in a comic movie, and still say to yourself… “7’ayal el mo7’reg 3aly awy”
The same scene happened the very next day at the exact same time…
I really wonder where they were heading to, and how come this happened in the first place…!
I mean… I’ve been there… this really could have caused terrible car accidents…!
Anyhow, have a nice day…
