2nd Day in Ras: The Attack of Camels on the Sands
First day of my trip in Ras Al-Khair was wet, rainy and sandy. It was raining cats and dogs the whole day. Yes, you’ve read it right. In the Kingdom, it also rains once the weather is about to change. Usually September is the last month of hot season and the start of winter. Once it rained, it signifies winter is coming and after the rain, expect a sandstorm few weeks after. Temperature plummets from 10 degrees Celsius down to 8 degrees Celsius by December which is mid-winter season in Saudi Arabia. Anyhow, on my second day in Ras Al-Khair, I felt like I went on a tour. I was wandering in the vast view of nowhere and to only see sands and camels.
Sands and camels were everywhere and I was imagining myself in an Arabian movie caused it looked like I was on the set and ready to ride on one of those hump-y creatures. But those camels are wild and not tame, so, I just took photos whenever I see them.
The driver was kinda awe when he saw me sticking my face on the window of the van just like a kid looking so fascinated.
It was an amazing day and it completed my Arabian stay since it wouldn’t be a great Arabian experience if I haven’t seen a camel or the desert.
