“I’m ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille!” Looking pretty for the camera, this dressed up camel is available for rides for only 10 Saudi Riyals ($2.50 US). A covered chair-like contraption (minus the legs) sits securely attached atop the camel’s hump and provides a place for the passenger to sit. The one-hump dromedary camel is native to Saudi Arabia, other Middle Eastern countries and Africa. It is much more common than the two-hump Bactrian camel, which is indigenous to the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. In addition to giving camel rides, The Arabian dromedary camel is also known for its milk, which is higher in protein and fat than cow’s milk.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
