17 thoughts on “Ships of the Desert – Haiga – September 4, 2014

    • I was especially drawn to these at the Sluderno Middle Ages event because they are real camels! Two humps not one … and I’d never seen one before only the one humped dromedaries! They are not serene beasts in fact as you’ve heard. I think it would be useful to have a hump of water in the desert and was fascinated too as a child with the idea! Thanks for sharing and I’m often pushed to wonder … what is normal?


  1. Oh I love camels and used to imagine riding a camel in the dessert for days and days. Your haiku is lovely…I noticed you and Jen in this 30 day spin…(sigh) tempted I am but I can barely catch my breath…I stick with the ones I have for now.


  2. I’m amazed that so much many people in your comment thread say they like camels. I rode one when I went to Petra – it was horrible! Really, really horrible. The camel I was on was really bad tempered and kept trying to take me into a ditch while the camel owner ambled along behind me thinking the whole thing was a great joke. Never again. ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Camels and Dromidaries can be pretty horrible actually and they spit too! Don’t know anything about llamas … so I’d probably think they were sweet wooly cuddle toys ๐Ÿ˜‰


      • It’s funny because my friend said he never saw spitting from the camels. A lot of yelling and they had a habit of stepping on people’s feet. It didn’t hurt since their feet are so padded, so he described it as a ‘do you mind, camel?’ situation.
