I just love camels! They’re so photogenic, don’t you think? This particular camel card comes from Mohamed.

This extremely cheerful camel is posing in front of a the Great Pyramid of Giza (also known as the Pyramid of Khufu or the Pyramid of Cheops). It is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact. Based on a mark in an interior chamber naming the work gang and a reference to fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu, Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb over a 10 to 20-year period concluding around 2560 BC.
