Animal crackers...

Photo essay for today, while I'm still on vacation and away from the computer. We're currently in Athens, but will be coming home to Dubai in just a couple of days. Can't wait to share all about it with you!

In the meantime, some four-legged friends spotted by the road in the UAE emirate, Umm al Quwain:

another of my favorite little animals, of course.

darling friendly camel

these donkeys have a dark feral stripe down the center of their backs to the tail

fuzzy young donkey, shedding his baby fur

donkey herd wisely making the best of the shade

the daddy donkey was also standing nearby, keeping an eye on us.

noble and beautiful

and to think, before we came to the land of the camel, I feared the UAE desert would be desolate and empty of life...
