I know that cats and dogs like me or even love me, when we met. I am not afraid of dogs neither of cats and they must smell that I won't do them any harm. If I meet a dog or a cat it doesn't last long that the cats settle down on my lap, and the dogs come towards me and wave friendly with their tail.
What I didn't know was, that camels love me too ! But they are a little big to sit on my lap so I haf to do the other way around.
It was not difficult to climb on its "lap"
Finally I was comfortably installed in the saddle
It swung me softly through the sand
and checked from time to time if I was still there
Sometimes his owner left me alone and it followed the others, or tried to give the neighbor girl a kiss, which made me slip in my saddle !
Far too soon, only half an hour, the ride ended and I had to say good bye
What did my camel do ? It fell on the sand and rolled around like a happy cat or a dog !
It was quiet impressive and I had to watch that he didn't roll against my legs !
at the end it gave me a big smile and said good bye !
I wished I had a camel here and could do my shopping with it, riding from our house to the shopping center and watch people from high above ! It's certainly quiet easy to find a "parking" place for it.
