A camel herder I ran into on my way back from Zeila to Berbera. His big camel had just given birth and he was carrying the newborn on his back (in sweltering heat)! The neck was flopping all about its little baby cry could make the coldest human melt. The mother was so proud.

Anytime you think your job is hard, just think of this guy, carrying camels for miles on end in the sweltering heat!

I have a couple more photos from Somaliland that I was holding on to. Since I won the lonely planet competition with a Somaliland photo, I will release them this week. Go visit Somaliland if you get the opportunity! Great welcoming place (and not too photographed)!
