Ride a Camel through the Desert, Drinking Wine

True story!

In some of the more eccentric expat circles in Jordan, a new tradition has taken hold. Visitors are enjoying a glass of wine, while riding a camel through the desert. If you have ever ridden a camel, you know they don’t exactly provide a stable platform for enjoying a glass of wine. A certain amount of ingenuity was required, but eventually, a workable solution was devised. And that’s why you may see someone riding a camel through the desert, drinking wine … from a sippy cup. I kid you not.

This is a recent tradition, so I didn’t see it on my last trip. But I did see camels, and they are stubborn. In this picture, you can almost imagine the camel thinking “Seriously?  A sippy cup?”IMG_3343-copy_edited-1
