The Mountain or the Bedouins?

Video Finds of the Day

A metaphor in videos of a spiritual choice.

You're a tourist in the Sinai Peninsula, about to ascend Mt. Sinai itself, with the aid of Bedouin guides. Do you spend the night climbing by flashlight to view the sunset from the summit?

Or, do you accept an offer from your guides to spend the night with them? These tourists chose the Bedouins.

I think I would always choose the Bedouins.
