The little town of Daraw is famous for its weekend camel market. It was just an ordinary market day when we visited while sailing a felucca down the Nile, and rather lovely too.
Still, some guys from the Pyramids had come in a pickup truck to collect their purchases and drive them up to Cairo. They bought nine — the going rate, should you be thinking of selling your daughters, or, perhaps your wife, starts at a few thousand Egyptian pounds.
Egypt, like most developing countries, is not big on animal rights. Can you guess how many they crammed into the truck?
