Traveling Man

A description of Poirot’s ride on a camel:

He started by groans and lamentations and ended by shrieks, gesticulations and invocations to the Virgin Mary and every Saint in the calendar. In the end, he descended ignominiously and finished the journey on a diminutive donkey.

from “The Adventure of the Egyptian Tomb”
