A camel herder relaxes as he waits for customers to come by and purchase fresh camel milk. One can see many camel stations like this one on the outskirts of Jeddah. Those camels with straps visible on their torsos are actually nursing mama camels wearing bra-like contraptions which inhibit the babies from nursing. This allows more milk to be available for paying customers. Camel’s milk sells for 20 riyals (about $5 US) for about a gallon. It is richer in vitamins and other nutrients than regular cow’s milk and has proven health benefits like controlling diabetes and blood pressure and constipation.

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.
