Camel's Eye View
Fellow Veerni volunteer Nisha and I rented camels for an afternoon in Osian, a small town an hour north of Jodhpur. You have to mount the camel when he's lying on the ground, they're so massive. Then you hang on while he straightens first his forelegs--whoa!--then his back legs. These babies are racing camels so their legs alone are about five feet high.
