Most of us think of camels as denizens of the desert, but naturally since they do have to eat and drink, most of them live in some kind of farming situation. They are still used a great deal in the Nile Valley for carrying heavier loads than donkeys can carry. This poor soul is one of the camels used by a date palm trimming crew. The fronds are loaded on the camels back with the wooden ends towards the head. When you see the camels walking down the road, they look like enormous peacocks with their long green tails waving behind them.
