Out For A Drive


We were driving into Maadi the other day and came up on one of the pictures that I've always wanted to take...a camel truck. You see these things on the roads every so often moving camels somewhere. Some of them might be on their way to a slaughter house because camel is eaten as well as ridden. Others might be on their way to work somewhere far from the city. The funny thing is that they kneel down in the truck and seem to be enjoying the trip.

Hey, great shot! I used to see this all the time in Doha, but was never able to get my camera up in time... my favourites were the baby camels with their great big eyes!
