Transcript SINAI. 249 There was not much life in the encampment, and not much to observe. When we halted our camels, however, for the midday meal, and when, having had no breakfast, the Arabs had got their little fire lighted, 1 had an opportunity of watching their primitive mode of bread-making. (>ne took some meal and held it in his hands, whilst his comrade poured over it a few drops of water ; he then mashed up the moistened flour into a paste, pulled the lump of dough so made into small pieces, and thrust them into the embers to bake. Some of our Arabs had wooden bowls with a handle in which to mix up the paste, and there was, I think, some salt (salt dug out of the earth) thrown in. This midday meal in the Desert often brought to my mind what the Scotch say, 44 Better a small bush than no shelter." What pains one took to find out •ay6n musa. From this spot probably one commences the real desert journey. the tallest bush. And then the arrangement of the baggage to eke out the pretence at shade, and the giving shade to different parts of the body in turn ! In the rocky districts of the Desert this matter of shade did not concern one so much; and there it is that the traveller learns the full meaning of that expression, " As the shadow of a great rock in a weary land" (Isaiah xxxu. 2).
