To enjoy our last day to the fullest we added a camel ride to our normal routine of snorkeling and then laying in the sun.
We had a great time. The hotel staff came and got us for our reservation. The 2 camels were lying on their sides like 2 dead dogs. The trainer gave them a command and they rolled onto their knees. Alex and I got on the camels and they stood up. We walked through the desert for half an hour and stopped for a few photo opportunities.
Our guide in Luxor told us that camels can smell water up to 80 meters deep
We found the most interesting thing on the camels were their feet. Instead of being hard hooves like a horse, they were very soft. Each time the camel steps the foot would expand. This helps keep them from sinking in the desert sand.
