365/160: 29 July 2010: Not something you see in Cumbria

Wandered down to the cash machine to get some more baksheesh and came across this chap on the way back. Camels appear to be inveterate bin-ratchers – this one helped himself from the dustbins and skips along the main street as he went. I’m guessing they’re trained to come home when they’re bored, because our guide told us they cost about 15-18 months of a typical wage – so you wouldn’t want to lose one.

PS: The really tall palm tree in the background is in fact a phone mast, and also featured a loudspeaker for the regular calls to prayer – right outside our window.
