Dismounting a Camel

You probably can't tell in this picture, but I was flexing every muscle in my body in order to make this dismount smooth. Despite my valiant effort, it closely resembled Kerri Strug's infamous vault dismount in Atlanta at the 1996 Olympic Games. Except I didn't win any type of gold or medal. And it wasn't my ankle that was injured.

Additionally - I will, hopefully, shortly have a video for you demonstrating that our 5 year old selves are definitely still inside each and every one of us.

Check out all those precious, desert rocks.. Things that make you go Mmmmm.

Omg, I love this blog! So funny...and I've heard the same "dismounting" issues from other friends.

Did you know that camels spit?

Take this with a grain of salt & strong stomach, but camels do not actually 'spit' per the term's literal definition. Since they're ruminants, like cows, they actually emit semi-digested contents from their stomachs. Additionally, they don't spit frequently, and if trained, rarely at all.

In my experience, we did not see one camel spit. Those silly dromedaries!
