…the sand and camels…part 2

We spent Saturday experiencing an Arabian Camp!  This was an event sponsored by AWARE (Advocates for Western Arab Relations)

This organization hosts many events, classes, etc. for the western expats to participate in learning about the Arab culture. 

Since first arriving one cannot help but notice the tents in the dessert, alongside the highways….some just behind the city housing.  Its very curious….so we signed up to head out to camp!!

Games, camel rides, buggy rides(atv) big buffet lunch at dining tables with linens even…in the middle of the desert…how cool is that???  It was a great experience.
