Pushkar Camel Fair.
Getting a good camel
off I go exploring for the day

A week before most of the tourists arrive and Iím having the time of
my life riding a camel around the fair site and a village to the north.

 

I sure enjoy riding my camel at night through Pushkar to the lake!

Pushkar, India

At this years camel fair in Pushkar 13,000 camels showed up, a few thousand horses and a few thousand cattle too. Camel men had to herd their camels for hundreds of miles down the roads to attend the largest camel event in the world. On the last few days of the unusual event there are thousands of camels headed back out on the roads in all directions form Pushkar. In just 2 days the number of camels will drop from 13,000 to about 3,000. It's kind of sad going out there and seeing so few camels left, but on the flip side it's quite a sight seeing thousand of camels, some pulling carts going through town and down the roads.
