Where the deuce did they hide them? We almost went mad trying to find the one and only camel market in the UAE arriving from the Camel race at al-Wathba in Al-Ain. Every imaginable tourist sight was exemplary signposted but the friday camel markt! Just before giving up we managed to find the place.

Indeed the spectacle was almost over and the dismantling had already started, however hasty caretaker from Pakistan hoping for Bakshish showed us all the same some animals – sometimes newborns or just some days old. Whether for breeding or for slaughter: the market has it all.
