The camel Oscar was the big love of my holidays in Egypt at the Red Sea !





Oscar was very friendly but very stubborn too. When he didn't want to sit, then it took quite some time to convince him !



Two camels together !




Oscar looking around for tourists to carry !




Such a sweet face !



Chantal says hello to Oscar. We brought him some bread every morning. He was part of the beach.
