Evening Prayer at the Camp

« Back to Camel Beauty Contest-Camel Pageant: Isn't She Lovely? August 2009 National Geographic Magazine

The Al Mansori family prays at sunset near the campfire at the contest compound.  This family is from about 50KM outside Abu Dhabi.  They walked their camels even though they are wealthy, they did not want to risk transport in trucks for their precious camels.  The patriarch won a car today and another camel got a first place (up to a million DRH).
