This floating castle appears to be from an enchanted fable, but in actuality it is Europe's best preserved Renaissance water castle.
Pausing at the intersection of the rocky, arid expanses of Israel’s Negev Desert and this triangular traffic signal, we see a street sign common in the area; a warning for Camels. Once ridden by Arabic Bedouin, Camels in this UNESCO world heritage site are now ridden almost exclusively by tourists.
However, these rides are ill-advised for tourists who struggle with motion-sickness. Camels walk by moving both legs on one side and then both legs on the other, rocking side-to-side—one of several reasons why these trusty creatures have been nicknamed “ships of the desert.”
