Send your camel to bed

Standard

Wild and domesticated camels abound. These are bactrian camels, which is great as I’ve only seen dromedaries up to now. (It was starting to give me the hump!). I’d always thought that bactrians would make a better mount, as the shape of the humps makes them look comfier. I’ve had the opportunity to try both now, but I declined on both occasions. I prefer mechanical rather than organic steeds.

Horses are the other main form of transport here. It’s very common to see people on horses herding their flocks, even in the middle of the city. Cows roam freely and with unfenced roads is pretty much a free for all. In fact the roads so far are pretty much anarchy. No respect for others, just an “I must pass you” mentality.

Outside of the city I’m sure it’ll be much better. Or rather I HOPE it’ll be much better!!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
