My Name is ‘Sudany’. Let Me Take You for a Ride in Fujairah

Star of the Show
My name is ‘Sudany’.

I am a camel from the Arabian Peninsula which you can recognize with the distinctive one hump.

I live in Dubai under the sheikhdom of the mighty ruler, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed but I am having a terrific time getting work experience in the great emirate of Fujairah.

Fujairah is Cool
Before I was transported over here I thought Fujairah was out the back of beyond, a sleepy hollow that had nothing like the attractions of my own emirate.

I have changed my mind because for the last few weeks I have been staying in Fujairah, just over the road from the corniche and under a tree.

Let Me Take You for a Ride
My work each day starts at 7.30pm when it is getting cooler. Imagine that! I have the whole day off! From 7.30pm to 2.00 in the morning I give rides around the park overlooking the Arabian Sea. How good is that?

People are charged only 10 dirhams for a ride which is far cheaper than the Dubai Metro and is a total Emirati experience.

Come on over to Fujairah, bring the kids and have a ride on me this weekend at Fujairah’s Night Souk.

The organizers wouldn’t say it but in my humble opinion, I am the star attraction.

If you need more persuasion, see these 10 reasons why you should ride a camel.

I am really concerned about the way Australians are treating camels because here in the Emirates, people love camels and even have camel beauty contests. I'm quite a doll myself!

We camels are into multi-tasking in the UAE. Look at this healthy milk we are producing and have you tried these camel milk chocolates? Buy some for Eid! It will do wonders for your s*x life! Is it OK to talk like that during Ramadan? I disguised the word just in case it doesn't get through the UAE censors.
