In Saudi Arabia, most of the camel herders are Sudanese. They live out in the scorching desert heat with the camels that they tend, in very primitive and simple living arrangements. Not far beyond the outskirts of Jeddah, there are many outposts where camels can be found in just minutes by car from the city. There is fresh camel milk available and you can also buy whole camels for their meat as well. This camel herder was taking an afternoon nap (it was about 1pm) in a ramshackle shaded bunk, crudely built from old wood pieces and draped with various fabrics and bedding. Over the next few days I will be publishing more photos from our latest outing into the desert of this fascinating camel country.
City Daily Photo’s theme this month is “Time,” which I had a hard time coming up with – so when I realized a good title for this photo would be “Nap Time,” I went with it. Hope you don’t mind this creative twist on the theme! City Daily Photo is an online group of photo bloggers who post photos of their cities so we can all be armchair travelers and learn about other places in the world. The first day of each month is City Daily Photo’s Theme Day. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants
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.
