After being pesterd by the bloke at the Riviera to buy a place on this trip, we opted for the afternoon session. We were picked up by a horse and carriage outside our hotel and picked up a few at some other hotels and he took us to the Camel Station. We had to pay 3 dina for an ' Alibarbar' to keep our heads cool as we were going into the Sahara Desert. We were then taken to where about 20 camels were all lined up, looking prettty bad condition to be honest. You were chucked up onto to your camel and I do mean chucked. Those not wanting to ride the camels were taken the same route in the same horse and cart that brought us there. Time passed and people who had enough of the camels were asked to get off so that the ones unable to ride the first time, could have a go. We then pulled up into a garden thingy midgig where we were promised we would see the camel drinking a bottle of Coke. But to my dissapointment, it didnt. We were however allowed to feed the camel a piece of cactus using our mouths which you got a big kiss from the camel afterwards. Then as you usually do on any non-Thomas Cook excursion, we were taken to this hand made pottery shop which was nice to see a bit of the culture and a little lovely old lady was out the back making some hand made bread which was actually quite nice dipped in the olive oil. You were kindly requested to live a tip for the lady which was fair enough, we didn't mind. We then got taken back to the depot if you like, and shown the photos of us which we could purchas for about 30 dinar, which was good because you got about 25 professionaly printed photos. There was not enough spaces on the horse and cart to take us back so we were crammed into this tiny little 4 seaterone to our hotel. On the whole, a truly enjoyable experience, if I were to return to Tunisia, I would defo do this again!
