Arabian Sands (Penguin Classics)
About this deal
This coastline is an important nesting site for some 20,000 endangered Green Turtles annually and we will visit after dark this evening with a local guide.
Arabian Sands by Wilfred Thesiger | Goodreads
Far from delighted at being winched away, the camel’s bone-chilling guttural groan is a sound I’ll never forget. Once out of the sands we continue through a market town that is a meeting point for Bedouin for miles around.
Thesiger took many photographs during his travels and donated his vast collection of 25,000 negatives to the Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford. Its silver and white colour scheme and waterside location add to the serenity of the space, while its latticed domed roof casts spectacular shadows.
