Zeveljamz Nyam as Jamel Zevel. I think The Story of the Weeping Camel should be shown to students, agriculturalists, hunters, and families.

It’s just too much to believe that this camel was weeping because she had finally overcome her trauma about rejecting her child and now her heart was opened and she was crying with happiness over feeling like a mother again and being united with her child.

It is like you de being nailed by a sand blaster, the smell has a static electric feel to it, and frankly, after a day or so makes you feel a bit crazy, I did not blame that geschiche girl at all for crying.

He wants one, of course. An air just above me is a melancholy fragrance, and yellowness stains reality.
