One of the fun things to do in Karachi, Pakistan is to go camel riding on the beach. It might surprise you to know that the camel gets up by it's hind legs first and then it's front legs. So, if you are not ready for this, you feel as though you could fall off head first. After the camel is up it is fun to trott along the edge of the water (with a guide of course). Camels are beautiful animals but sometimes they spit. So... it's good to always make sure you are standing on the side of the animal rather than in front. This picture was taken in the winter of 1979.
