Camel adventures

Camels are an ordinary sight here in Libya, but I don't know what is this one doing in this vehicle - a bit too tight of a spot for such a large animal.

This is a Honda Civic parked in front of a garage door obviously in Libya.

What do you think ? and how did he fit in here ? But the camel is soooooooooo cute :)

I guess that this poor camel is just on the death row waiting to be slaughtered. I suppose people in Libya as it is the case in Tunisia and other parts of the Maghreb do eat camel meat which I personally tried and it turns out to be quite delicious:) Anyhow Highlander this my second request to you so please we need you in Maghreblog we miss our libyan brothers and sisters. It is not a military service so don't worry the time you join you will never regret it :)

Highlander regarding the second part of my comment sorry I didn't pay attention to your previous answer. Ok I will inform Maghrebloggers about your readiness to join Maghreblog and you will receive your password so that you will be able to contribute. We rely on your help to bring more libyan bloggers to our little community of bloggers. I guess we need an email address so that we will send you the access word.

Khadijateri - hmmm you must be having 'issues' of camel proportions with your 3azouza ;) lol. That was a funny suggestion .

Hannibal, yes I think the camel is taken to a wedding or funeral party to feed the guests. Camel is indeed delicious and has no fat.

Re. Maghreblog, I can't wait, lol@ military service . North Africans have a snarky sense of hunour eh ? anyway my email is frommyrock@yahoo.com and it is also avaible in the profile ;)

Our great leader is a cowboy... but not a gay cowboy, so I guess that's alright...

Highlander said...

Redenclave that's what I've been wondering all along :p this is a camel not a pet whereby you can tell it to sit , stand etc...:)

Thea : yes fascinating creatures but please watch out next time we don't want you to get lost :)
