Guess.What.Day.It.Is?


Notes:

  • Humps and hair. That’s the scene in Bulgan Soum, a tiny Mongolian town in the middle of the Gobi Desert about 160 miles north of the Chinese border. Bactrian camels arrive in all directions on foot, bearing bundled-up riders wedged between their two humps. It’s early March. While the sky is cloudless, the wind can pick up quickly. Officially called the Thousand Camel Festival, the crowd that arrives for the kickoff appears to consist of 100 camels. The two-day festival begins with a camel beauty pageant.”  Don’t miss full story and video at NPR: Where Camels Become Beauty Queens: Inside Mongolia’s Biggest Camel Festival. (Thank you Moira for sharing!)
  • Background on Caleb/Wednesday/Hump Day Posts and Geico’s original commercial: Let’s Hit it Again

  4. That’s so entertaining, interesting and a theme we know literally nothing about…..
    There was also elsewhere in blogland a link to a video and an informative text on a group of Mongolians taking a loooooong treck to render ppl attentif to their way of living. Seems to be a happening ‘dans le vent’

  5. btw; I own the film ‘The Story of the Weeping Camel’ and it’s one to really touch the soul!
    When I think that, as children, we called each other ‘dumb camel’ when we wanted to hurt each other! 😉
