I'm posting this overdressed camel, resting beside one of the great pyramids of Giza, to say that I've safely returned from a wonderful trip--and I'm overwhelmed with a large supply of photos which I'll gradually be culling, editing, and posting.

Cheers, Marilyn

now i know these are mis-mapped. certainly this neon camel hails from the vegas strip ;)

seriously though, you are right that the camel is overdressed and shockingly so! even it seems a bit embarrassed to be seen in public this way. now you've gone and posted him on the internet. oh, the shame on this poor animal :(

have fun going thru your photos - i'm still working on mine since mid-october! i get distracted easily... =) cheers, brian

I think the camel looks rather smug in fact Marilyn. S/he just can't wait to get to the caravan and have a look on Panoramio!

Greetings, Amelia

Certainly a beautiful beast Marilyn -- I'm glad you have safely returned.

Thanks, Brian, Amelia, blai, Bruce, and Jacques, for your nice (and amusing!) comments. Embarrassed or smug ... I can't decide.

Cheers, Marilyn

Two former over-dressed camels expired in the summer heat, and their fossilised remains are to be seen in the background!
