Notes:

  • “Every day is hump day in Gujarat, India. The rural area is famous for its swimming camels. How did these desert creatures get a taste for the sea? It’s the only way they can reach the mangroves where they feed. These Kharai camels—as they’re known—can actually swim nearly two miles in seawater. Jat Noor Mohammed’s family has been breeding and caring for these animals for generations. But, as new industries and climate change begin to destroy the mangroves that sustain these camels, his livelihood is under threat.”

  • Photo by Jo Ann Tomaselli on the outskirts of the ancient city of Jaisalmer which is located in the district of Rajasthan. “The camel grunted, the driver smiled and as he clicked his tongue and shook sand from his shoes these two partners, the mammal and the man, put on a delightful show; they danced in the desert just for me!  The camel drivers & their camels live in a small Bedouin village in the Thar Desert on the boarder between India and Pakistan. Daily, a small group of drivers leave their home and journey across the vast outdoor landscape of sand and sun, bringing traditional transportation to adventure seeking tourists such as myself. After a long day of exploration, I dismounted my dromedary to take in the vastness of the dry eastern desert and watch the sunset. And that’s when they did it! They started dancing!”
