Yusef

This is my trustee travel steed, Yusef. He safely transported me for two days through the Sahara desert with only a few minor mishaps of spitting on me as you can see the drool continuously running down his mouth. This photo was taken as I said goodbye and he allowed me to get up close and personal for this shot. I like to think he is smiling for his close-up.
