...for a camel-groomer  
Sunday appears to be extra festive, at the QV market: as we passed through this morning we saw an inflatable castle and a pair of camels being groomed. I got a picture of the animals with skyscrapers in the background while an American couple passed behind me; "at least they're not as stinky as the ones in Israel," one of them observed. I gave a flower to the man with the animal brush who looked slightly confused until I said "nice camels."

We've had them in Australia for quite some time.
Arabian herders rode them through the desert, here.
Now their ancestors give little children rides.
