      Royal Camel Farm

      November 20, 2022 in Bahrain ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

      Apropos Rennen, wir fahren zu Royal Camel Farm.

      Hier stehen um die hundert Kamele, man kann einfach umherlaufen, sollte Ihnen aber nicht zu nahe kommen.

      Auch ein Baby sehen wir.

      „Die königliche Kamelfarm am Stadtrand von Manama wurde von dem verstorbenen Scheich Mohammed Bin Salman Al Khalifa, dem Onkel des derzeitigen Herrschers von Bahrain, gegründet. Es handelt sich um eine Hobbyfarm, d. h. die Tiere werden nicht für Rennen oder zur Fleischgewinnung gezüchtet, und hier leben Hunderte von Kamelen, die alle der königlichen Familie gehören.

      Die Königliche Kamelfarm wird nicht als Touristenattraktion beworben. Sie ist jedoch jeden Tag bis zum Sonnenuntergang für die Öffentlichkeit zugänglich, so dass es Ihnen frei steht, sich umzusehen, die Kamele zu sehen und mit den Bauern zu sprechen. Der Eintritt in die Farm ist kostenlos, aber manchmal gibt es die Möglichkeit, die Kamele zu füttern oder sogar auf ihnen zu reiten, wofür eine kleine Gebühr mit den Arbeitern ausgehandelt werden kann.“

      Wofür werden die Kamele verwendet? Fleisch? Milch? Lastentiere? 🤔


      Gute Frage, ich hab im Internet noch was gefunden und den Footprint geändert. Ganz liebe Grüße nach Österreich

      BITCH3 Trail #32 (2nd Anny)

      April 3, 2020 in Bahrain ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

      The Bahrain Independent Trail Chasers H3 (BITCH3) is a fairly new club here in Bahrain, hence the second anniversary. You can read about their exploits (and rules) at - I volunteered to set another trail while I am in a holding pattern waiting for the COVID 19 to run its course, and get back to travelling. This was another social distancing success. After a good scouting hike on Wednesday, Saigon Sally and I set trail in the morning, and let the pack loose to run it anytime they wanted in the afternoon. There were many accounts posted of finding dead things (bones, skulls, and whole skeletons of various animals) out in the desert. The pack also had to dodge a few horses, and at least one motorcycle. Trail turned out a bit shorter than planned, but anyone who has hared knows, the trail sort of works itself out in its own way. Spring is fading here in Bahrain, and summer is coming . . . so hydrating is getting more important. But until the COVID era is over, y'all have to bring your own beer, and enjoy it in your own time. 2 meters distance, and no groups larger than 5. Get some. more


      The start, we're just getting organized to set this trail.


      Plenty of desert, only one very short stretch on pavement, when we went through the town, but otherwise, all sand.


      The Run / Walk merge. Runner's trail was about 7.5 Kms, and walker's was about 5 Kms.


      A few of the pack enjoying post trail refreshments.

      Bahrain Black H3 Trail #1849

      April 11, 2020 in Bahrain ⋅ ☁️ 28 °C

      Not quite as hot today, but was still pretty warm. Was a nice city trail through Janabiyah. Saigon Sally and I went out for an early morning jog, and were probably the first ones on trail. By the time we finished, there were a couple others on trail, and a couple more that took off just before we drove away. Very well marked trail, good times. I actually found the "On In" while looking around at a previous check, but knew it was too soon, so ran back and found trail going the other direction. So got an extra 2 Kms worth in. This may be my last hash trail here in Bahrain, as my visa expires tomorrow. If my extension does not get approved, I'll have to make a hasty departure Sunday night (early Monday morning). more


      Chalk talk. The box is a photo check, and the fish hook was a check back 10.


      Through the ancient burial grounds.


      One small hill to give it some elevation.
