Spanish-Speaking Camel

Hispanic Festival 2013-09-07 6

So okay, we got some mismatched patterns. But that makes life interesting.

Off in a corner of Kiener Plaza was a petting zoo for kids attending the Hispanic Festival. I've allways thought "petting zoo" was a strange term but it's common in this country. There, between the pony and the pig, was this camel. I've seen feral camels in the Australian Outback but, to my knowledge, they do not inhabit Latin America outside of the Mexico City Zoo or whatever.

So there it was, getting the attention of nice suburban mommy and blond daughter. I hear camels can be ill behaved. Would it like a slurp of mommy's beer?

Appalling day at work yesterday and didn't get any comments written. We hope for a better tomorrow.

There is a small spot of Spain on the African side of the Straits of Gibraltar, so maybe the Hispanic Camel is from there.

Wow, it just dominates the pic.

And yes, they can be a bit ill tempered.
