Camels Are Cool
It's funny how animals, especially farm animals and zoo animals make even grown ups giddy. Even ordinary animals in unusual places can do that, like puppies in purses. On our way home from one of our homeschooling groups we saw this illusive camel. We've spotted him once before, but we actually had a chance to experience him up close. The girls even got to pet him.
There was quite a crowd gathered on the side of the road and this is not a crowd-gathering friendly road. It's a fast road with little shoulder. It's littered with broken glass and lined with a barbed-wire fence. The crowd was mainly grown ups with no kids and they were going gaga over the camel. Fantastic! No wise men to be seen, but I guess they'll be around after Christmas. Epiphany is on January 6th, I believe. ;)
