A Day At The Races

Camel racing is big business in Dubai. We were up well before dawn to see the first 5 mile race at 7 o'clock at the Dubai Camel Racing Club. 

Since accusations of human rights abuse the UAE has stopped using young Pakistani boys as jockeys. They now use robots... complete with remote controlled whips and even little jockey caps.

They're under starters orders...

And they're off!!!

Five miles later.
