en-es  The Camel's Nose In The Tent.
La nariz del camello en la carpa



Una fría noche, cuando un árabe estaba sentado en su tienda, un camello introdujo poco a poco su nariz por debajo del avance y miró en el interior. "Amo", dijo, "déjame poner mi nariz en tu tienda. Aquí fuera hace frío y hay tormenta". "Por supuesto", dijo el árabe, "y bienvenido" cuando se dio la vuelta y se fue a dormir.

Un poco más tarde, el árabe se despertó y encontró que el camello no sólo había puesto su nariz en la tienda, sino también su cabeza y su cuello. El camello que había estado volviendo la cabeza de un lado al otro, dijo: "Ocuparé solamente un poco más de sitio si coloco mis patas delanteras dentro de la tienda. Es difícil aguantar aquí afuera". "Sí, puedes colocar tus patas dentro", dijo el árabe, moviéndose un poco para hacer sitio, puesto que la tienda era pequeña.

Finalmente, el camello dijo: "¿No puedo permanecer completamente dentro? Mantengo la tienda abierta quedándome así". "Sí, sí", dijo el árabe. "Ven adentro por completo. Tal vez sea mejor para ambos". Así que el camello entró. El árabe fue de nuevo a dormir con dificultad en el alojamiento abarrotado. Cuando despertó la próxima vez, él estaba afuera en el frío y el camello tenía la tienda para sí.


Otra versión de esta historia.

Andando en camello. Un día un árabe y su camello estaban cruzando el desierto. Llegó la noche y la temperatura se hizo más fría. El árabe montó su tienda y ató al camello a ella. El árabe fue a dormir.

La temperatura se hizo algo más fría y el camello preguntó al árabe si podía poner solamente su nariz en la tienda para calentarla. El árabe aceptó que el camello metiera solo su nariz dentro, porque la tienda era pequeña y allí no había sitio para dos. Así la nariz del camello se calentó y al cabo de un rato la temperatura bajó incluso más.

El camello preguntó nuevamente al árabe si podía meter dentro solo las patas delanteras porque estaban muy frías. El árabe aceptó de mala gana que el camello metiera dentro solo las patas delanteras y nada más. Así el camello movió dentro sus patas delanteras y se calentaron. Después de algún tiempo, el camello pidió al árabe nuevamente que tenía que meter sus patas traseras o de lo contrario no sería capaz de hacer el viaje a la mañana siguiente con las piernas heladas. Así que el árabe aceptó y una vez que el camello metió sus patas traseras, no había más sitio en la tienda para el árabe y el árabe fue echado afuera.

The Camel's Nose In The Tent.

One cold night, as an Arab sat in his tent, a camel gently thrust his nose under the flap and looked in. "Master," he said, "let me put my nose in your tent. It's cold and stormy out here." "By all means," said the Arab, "and welcome" as he turned over and went to sleep.

A little later the Arab awoke to find that the camel had not only put his nose in the tent but his head and neck also. The camel, who had been turning his head from side to side, said, "I will take but little more room if I place my forelegs within the tent. It is difficult standing out here." "Yes, you may put your forelegs within," said the Arab, moving a little to make room, for the tent was small.

Finally, the camel said, "May I not stand wholly inside? I keep the tent open by standing as I do." "Yes, yes," said the Arab. "Come wholly inside. Perhaps it will be better for both of us." So the camel crowded in. The Arab with difficulty in the crowded quarters again went to sleep. When he woke up the next time, he was outside in the cold and the camel had the tent to himself.

Another version of this story.

Walking Camel One day an Arab and his camel were crossing the desert. Night came and the temperature became colder. The Arab put up his tent and tied the camel to it. The Arab went to sleep.

The temperature became slightly colder and the camel asked the Arab if he (camel) could just put his nose in the tent to warm up. The Arab agreed that the camel could just put his nose in, because the tent was small and there was no room for 2. So the camel's nose became warm and after a while the temperature went down even more.

The camel asked the Arab again, if he (camel) could just put his fore legs in because they were very cold. The Arab reluctantly agreed that the camel could only put his fore legs in and no more. So the camel moved in his fore legs and they became warm. After sometime the camel asked the Arab again that he had to put in his hind legs or else he won't be able to make the journey the next morning with frozen legs. So the Arab agreed and once the camel moved his hind legs in, there was no more room in the tent for the Arab and the Arab was kicked out.
