So after a gruelling trek through the desert and some pounding sand duning in the jeep we headed to camp for some dinner and entertainment, all inclusive in the package of course.
We were pretty starving by the time we got there as it’s not recommended to eat before the sand duning as you’ll most likely get naseous..so none of us had eaten since breakfast.
Out of 5 cars I think we saw someone sick in all of em..including ours 🙁
When we arrived we got to have a quick ride on a camel, only for 10-15 metres or so just to get a taste of the experience, it’s really not very comfortable and seems quite high..much higher than a horse and a lot bumpier! The worse part is when the camel kneels down for you to get off…beware men you might lose your chance to have kids if you aren’t prepared at this point.
Yes indeed, it’s a bit of a ball crusher.
After that we all sat around the huge rug in the middle and munched on something like naan bread whilst smelling the BBQ we would be eating later.
Patiently waiting for the BBQ.
Cooking the food for us..
Ah finally the food is done.
It was a good mix, some salad, 2 types of rice, houmous, flat bread, naan bread, a few types of stew and some bbq meat (chicken and lamb).
Ah then the star of the show emerged, Julia!
Every male over the age of 3 was mesmerised (and drooling).
Some audience participation!
Shaking her thang.
I would have liked to have changed lens for the night shots…but no way I’m changing lens in the middle of a desert!
At the end we smoked a bit of Shisha and headed off back to the appt (Shisha in Malaysia is better IMHO), it was an amazing afternoon/evening and I recommend it to everyone.
I’ll probably do it again one day if I get the chance.
