Two Egyptian camel drivers were fighting for the hand of the daughter of the sheikh of Luxor. The sheikh, who liked neither of these men, came up with a clever plan: a race would determine which of the two men would be allowed to marry his daughter. He organized a camel race. Both camel drivers had to travel from Cairo to Luxor, and the one whose camel would arrive there last would be allowed to marry the sheikh's daughter.
The two camel drivers, realizing that this could become a rather lengthy expedition, finally decided to consult the Wise Man of their village. They explained their plight, and he came up with a solution immediately.
What was the Wise Man's solution?
