January 1997, Mt. Sinai, 4:30 AM}
We climb Mt Sinai with flashlights in our hands. We cling to the rocks. Camel Jockeys shout in the dim light, “You want Camel? Twenty-five dollars!”I reply, “We’re American’s I need no camel to get up this darn mountain.”Our flashlights go out.We quickly stumble on.
