Summer and I spent the better part of four days traveling from Goa to Rajasthan, India for the sole purpose of going on a desert camel trek. We braved trains and buses and creepy starers and even a few mean people to get here. And it was worth it. We took a jeep ride out into the desert at 6:30am where we had a campfire breakfast and then saddled up and rode off into the sand. We saw villages and people and more sand and in general had a nice relaxing time. It was so weird staring at the butt of the camel in front of me, because they truly looked like a CGI thing on some Star Wars movie. They have two knees! One bends forward and the other back. Their leg makes a 'Z' shape when they lay down. And it's so scary when they get up and down! You have to get on them while they're laying down and then hold on for dear life while they stand up.
