Dune Bashing

This was a blast. A planned tourist excursion out in the desert! Kristen was really looking forward to this outing; riding a camel, a henna tattoo and just getting an authentic'ish experience.

I was all about the dune bashing! I caught the front seat which was the equivalent of being in the front car of a roller coaster. Awesome! Our driver seemed irritated by having to conform with the other cars...he just wanted to let loose. So I felt we got the best driver of the bunch!

The camel riding was a bit of a let down. I don't know if Kristen thought she would have free reign and get to be Lawrence from Arabia, but her experience was quite memorable. Another family had just come off the camel ride, but one of the kids had to wait for the second go around. The short pudgy and likely youngest of the bunch, he was being teased by his siblings for having to ride with Kristen. It was quite comical!
