At the camel market in Riyadh
This is my first time in KSA (The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia). I am here for work and I am here only for a week but I hope to be out and about as much as I can with my camera. After a light morning's work, I went out with a taxi and a new Italian friend and we headed off to the Souk Gemal, camel market. Really, the BIGGEST market I have ever seen, soread out over miles and miles,. Big animals, camels. I tried to get up onto this one, but no-one could understand that I need a leg up (not as supple as I used to be) so every time I tried to get on the camel was already on his way up. Oh well, at least, I managed to get this photo out of it.
I am staying in Riyadh, which, to be honest, doesn't seem to be my kind of city, with its big roads, drive-in restaurants and shopping malls. It probably has it's charms and I have only bene here a day.
Off now to look for either a Somali or Yemeni restaurant.
