Camel Herder

I like to go with my husband when he goes to the camel outposts just outside of the city to purchase fresh camel milk. I enjoy taking photos of the camels and the men who take care of them. The camel herders are mostly from Sudan and live out in the desert among the camels. They lead very simple but hard lives, and they are seemingly happy. I wrote a more detailed post about the life of a camel herder on my other blog, Susie's Big Adventure. CLICK HERE to read it.

Given the economy of Sudan I am sure the life of a camel herder in Saudi Arabia is a good alternative.

Hi Jerry - You are right. It's really amazing to see how these guys live here and how content they seem. Nothing seems to rattle them.
