Southern Iraqi desert


You don't see these every day, but it reminds you that we're not in Kansas anymore Toto. Evidently, someone owned them, but they let them run free to graze and drink on their own. They sure as hell weren't going to do it, not much foliage around- amazing how resilient they are anyhow. They say the white ones are supposed to be more valuable... interesting. A nice break from other distractions.

  • How interesting. The case is pretty much the same in the Australian Outback. They used the camels as the pack animals for laying telgraph cable, and when they were done with them, they just released them into the wild. But those damn Aussies told me they were the only people in the world who still had wild camels. But I guess I should've taken that claim with a grain of salt. Or sand.

  • Haha... cool, but not so cool I want to see that much of them. They're also quite smelly, if you've heard-
