Give Me A Kiss, Moses


While visiting Giza with some friends who were winding up a trip to Egypt, we made the requisite pilgrimage to the panoramic point to take some photos. Despite no plans to go camel riding, the girls succumbed to the charms of Moses the camel and his handler. Moses does seem to be genuinely fond of Omar.

I wonder how many people have taken that shot over the years?

I'm sure that it is a favourite. You just have to do the math: Somewhere between 10 and 12 thousand visitors a day to the Giza plateau and there are only about 40 camel men there.
