Perhaps this was Tarish, driver of the expedition Land Rover in 1962 and (together with his brother Arber) in 1964. If it wasn't, then it certainly could have been. Cheerful, resourceful, helpful, friendly and humorous, Tarish was an exemplar of traditional Arab courtesy: whether rich or poor, we are all equal under Allah.

And by golly, I wish I could still squat on my haunches like they can.
