The desert could be among the last position on Earth you would certainly expect to discover a charm pageant. But on Xmas Day, while you were active evaluating the limits of your digestion system, VICE's Charlet Duboc was traipsing with sand dunes in Abu Dhabi's remote Western Region, all in the name of elegance.
In the West, we downplay beauty contests for pets, horses, blossoms, even ladies. However the leggy, doe-eyed lovelies on parade right here are of the four-legged variety, and also are evaluated on such criteria as having a nice firm set of ears and floppy lips. Just like cover girls, at the elevation of their careers camels could regulate numerous dollars. That recognized?
While the super-car or the SUV has actually changed the camel as the most popular ways of transportation in the modern Emirates, the pet preserves a vital area in the nation's heart. "Beautiful camel" might strike you as something of an oxymoron. Yet many a bedouin or sheikh will certainly downplay going down approximately $3 million dollars on a supposed valued appeal, in the hope that she'll bring home the sought after Bayraq– the fairest camel in the land. In this episode of The VICE Guide to Travel, Charlet finds herself the only woman in the desert, seeking the elusive appeal in the beast.
