Bottoms Up!

I'm about to do something I may come to regret. I went to the store today and bought a drink that is a staple in the Emirates and the newest thing in U.A.E. exports: Camel Milk. I've had camel meat before in Libya, but I've never had the opportunity to try camel milk. In the U.A.E this stuff is everywhere. They have it in plain flavor, as well as in date, strawberry, and chocolate. I read in a magazine here that camel milk is apparently all the rage. Bedouins have been drinking it forever, and it is said to have many healthful properties. Camel milk is  richer in fat and protein than cow's milk and also low in lactose so people with lactose intolerance can indulge as well.

I'm not gonna lie, I'm really apprehensive to try this, but I think I owe this to my loyal readers. I'm going to bite the bullet and take a sip, just a second I'll tell you how it goes.

Okay, I'm back. That was tough. It tasted like skim milk + that smell when you go into a hot attic. I'll probably never try this again. Sorry camels of Arabia, stick to crossing deserts with no water. Maybe I'll have better luck with the gourmet camel milk chocolate.
