2. Giza, Egypt: 'Nobody can steer a donkey'

In Egypt, on his way to see the pyramids at Giza, Twain recorded this observation about riding a donkey in “Innocents Abroad”:

“Nobody can steer a donkey, and some collided with camels, dervishes, effendis, asses, beggars and every thing else that offered to the donkeys a reasonable chance for a collision.”
