Camels in the Roads

Just driving along the roads that go up to Alexandria or the North Coast of Egypt, one can run into herds of camels. These usually are not wild camels. They are usually camels owned by the bedouin. The man or family that owned all of these camels is probably considered pretty rich. Camels are of great value. We were often offered very many camels in exchange for our daughter, but usually, this was their way of kidding around with us. I can't help but think sometimes though, that there were probably some of them that were serious. ;O)


  1. Your daughter might have been very flattered! HA! Great pictures.

  2. LOL re. being offered Camels for your daughter, Jackie ! How lovely though, that you see them so often along the roadside there ....

  3. Dedene and Lynda,
    Kaily got it so often, she learned to just ignore it. She really did get a serious marriage proposal once, and she was only 14 at the time. She looked much older than that though.
