“Despina can be reached in two ways: by ship or by camel. The city displays one face to the traveler arriving overland and a different one to him who arrives by sea. When the camel driver sees...the pinnacles of the skyscrapers come into view, the radar antennae, the white and red wind-socks flapping, the chimneys belching smoke, he thinks of a ship; he knows it is a city, but he thinks of it as a vessel that will take him away from the desert.

The sailor discerns the form of a camel’s withers, an embroidered saddle with glittering fringe; he knows it is a city, but he thinks of it as a camel from whose pack hang wine-skins and bags of candied fruit, and already he sees himself at the head of a long caravan taking him away from the desert of the sea, toward oases of fresh water in the palm trees’ jagged shade."

Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities
