One Hump Or Two?


Gail and I have visited Dubai many times, but not once have we seen a camel. The other day our luck was in. We decided to spend the day on the beach, and while we were soaking up the rays, Laurence of Arabia rode by on one and towing another. Perhaps it was his caravan!
Took a number of shots, but think this one came out the best.

Dubai is still overcast with the fallout from the sandstorm in Iraq which is affecting the whole of the UAE. It's about 40*c at the moment, but no sun is getting through the cloud of dust. It's not as drastic as the old pea soupers that the UK used to get in the 1950s. I'll see if I take a good image to illustrate it.
