How do you actually drive a friggin Camel?
On Saturday, in Dubai, they made me jump on one and give it a rev.
After watching my fellow Bar One Manhunt contestants give it a swirl I thought it was not too bad, I mean surely, a camel people, it must be like a horse, just go forward. SURELY!!!
Well, no, it does not drive, look, handle or even sound like a horse. Camels, I have decided, are the most ridiculous animals in the racing world and must stay in the desert.
It is only the poor under-aged Camel Jockeys that can make that thing move, I am too big, too blonde, too impatient and lacking a turban, am not cut out for a career in the races of the dunes.
Thank you to Bar One and the production crew for the experience, but unfortunately my mind is made up, I’ll stick to a bakkie for transport.
