(Dutch) Camel Love

That is a camel face on my left shoulder. Necking with me.

What can I say?

Camel love.

Combining two of my interests, camels and reading (try Phyllida Law's How Many Camels are There in Holland? title taken from the British Alzheimer's test ― nothing to do with camels really, but a delightful memoir of her mother's progression with the disease and how the family dealt with it, including daughter Emma Thompson and son-in-law Kenneth Branagh), I now know there are at least 85 of them, all at Kamelenmelkerij Smits (Smits Camel Dairy Farm) in Berlicum, Netherlands.

The friendliest beasts I have come across yet.
