|The next-door visitor|
On my way home on Sunday evening (November 6) I couldn’t believe we had a next-door visitor – a most beautiful camel.
It was Eid al-Adha, or Feast of the Sacrifice, and one of the families was having a party. They must have arranged for the camel and its handler to take children for rides. What a great idea.
The children were running in and out of the villa to take turns riding the camel.
I had to stop and take pictures. It was a good opportunity to test my new Nokia N8 camera.

I still haven’t mastered how to transfer the photos from the phone to the computer via Bluetooth, so I had to email them to myself one at a time.
