This camel was just chilling on the side of the road in Salalah, Oman. We passed him driving to Job's tomb - yeah - the biblical Job who had a devil of a time, but never lost his faith in God.
No posts for almost a month? Such is life on the high seas.
I am in Male, in the Maldives right now, sitting at a little internet cafe/juice bar with Lionel Richie playing, and a bunch of Japanese tourists chattering behind me.
The Maldives sits 4 degrees north of the equator, just to the west of the southern tip of the Indian peninsula. It is a gorgeous atoll, and supposedly the diving around here is great. But the waters off Male, the main city, are dirty - dozens of dead fish and three-mile long diesel spills dirty.
