Camel Polo Anyone?

Yeppers, Mongolia has a Mongolian Camel Polo Association--website and everything--and I have the pictures to prove it!

Mongolian Dell & Parkas.  The old & the new.

Such Personality!


It was cold & windy
Eye-watering wind and just

Really cold

As always, the best stuff happens 
Behind the scenes:

 Notice the hair on their humps blowing in the wind.  Did I mention the wind?  And the cold?
I'd like to say it was a fun-filled day--but we only lasted about 45 minutes.  That wind and cold thing...We ended the outing with a picnic lunch--eaten in the car while watching the action from a distance.  My respect for camels has only grown.
