I Knew it Was Hot, But...

This is ridiculous!

Camels in Zihua2

Sorry for the delay in updating, but I knew something bizarre would happen if I just gave it a day or so. I've been a little under the weather lately (I finally caught Ibis' cold) and haven't had much energy this week. But this, this makes up for everything!

Yes, those are camels. Four of them.

Camels in Zihua3

The circus has been here for a couple weeks, so my first guess was this truck got turned around on his way out of town. Our neighborhood doesn't exactly go anywhere but up the mountain so I'm thinking there was a wrong turn involved. I had gone out to the balcony for some fresh air when I saw the truck driving up the road. The driver was nice enough to stop long enough for me to get the camera and the batteries had just enough juice for a few pictures.

The first picture was taken off the balcony and the second from the other end of the condo once he turned the corner.

I'll be checking for lions and elephants throughout the day.

ETA: I forgot to mention - you can sort of see the first camel trying to eat a tree. There was a lady standing on the other side of the trailer who was NOT happy about that!
