Marrakesh - Joni and the camel

The only item on my Morocco "wish list" was to ride a camel.  Don't know why this was such a big deal except I didn't have any idea of when I would ever be able to do it again.  So here are the pictures of my personal favorite Moroccan moment.

Procuring a camel is easy - these are down from the Menara Gardens and Pavillion on the outskirts of the old city.  I had help getting on and once I was up, it was easy for me (don't know about the camel).  It was a bit like sitting on an old couch and swaying along.  My camel (we called him Figaro) was sweet tempered and kind.  It was rather thrilling and I would definitely do this again!
