Piotr and the caracal


Piotr went for an early morning walk at Wadi Rum (he did not know that we had been warned not to walk out alone, especially in the dark), and came back saying he had seen not one large cat but two. Vernet said it must have been a caracal. I did not believe it, but Piotr checked against photos on the net, and confirmed that it was indeed a caracal with a cub or whatever you call the little one of a caracal. Unfortunately he had no camera with him, and, besides, he said he had been too frightened....
I tell you I was jealous of Piotr. All of us had been warned, and then he goes and sees the caracal...
