Drink this...

and be protected on your way.

I don't think

it wiII take much Ionger.

It should have arrived already yesterday.

You're always mistaken.

Not before tomorrow!

We'II see what he says.

The muzzle has already come out.

It Iooks good.

Leave her alone or she'II bite you.

On aII journeys

you find your way by the stars,

the way they rise above us

and disappear in one Iine.

You foIIow them

untiI the Iast one has risen

and disappeared again, behind us.

The consteIIation of the cameI's head

and many others,

you just mustn't confuse them...

We Ioaded the camels

and set out into the Tnr,

and we were vey thirsty.

We waIked, waIked, waIked,

for five days,

but the weII was dry.

Then we unloaded the baggage

and continued

for five days to the next weII.

We fetched water

and then again five days back

to our baggage.

And then again five days

from there to here where we are now...

And then I shout:

Evey time they come

and pursue me in my dream

I shout:

Sometimes I sleep under a tree

and can hear the jackaI...

In my dreams it comes

to eat the goats.

Then I shout:

Then it clears off.

And sometimes I dream

that something grabs me

and puIIs me into the sky...

You think we have nothing to do...

I told you, there's always somebody

grumbling about something.

If it isn't done properly,

we'II be in the sh*t the next time.
