You’ll notice a few things from the photos. The color of the sky, for instance, accurately reflects the color (or lack thereof) that is normal for August and September here. It’s now the 27th, and today was the first day that I can remember actually seeing the sun beating down from a clear, blue sky, with visible clouds spread about.
The camel ride was a great experience. While we didn’t get to take the reigns, we did get quite a good walk being led about. I’ll try to get some more photos from Pj’s camera and share them. The farm is a good distance into the desert and past the Al Ain oasis, so it was neat just to drive out there. Seeing all the camels was cool, and we got a true cultural experience, as I mentioned a couple posts ago.
I had at least four, perhaps five, rounds of tea or coffee with the menfolk. We sat on the surprisingly comfortable carpet arrangement you can see behind Pj and me in the last photo above.
We didn’t get home until 10:30pm, and we were bushed by then.
