The series of World Camel Day gifts is happily continue. Debi Robinson is continuously sending pictures as she is on the Ghan track travelling with camels’ cart (she has designed). She has gifted very heart touching pictures from the field.
According to Debi “The timeline for camels starts with explorers..then the surveyers…well sinking parties..telegraph line builders and finally the Ghan trainline..all following the same camel pads who took stores and mail into the inland.”
She told “A pity I have not got to Farina and beyond where Ghan towns and mosques as well as gravesites are to be found..I will send you all I can anyway if you are interested..but all the rain here has made a slow but memorable trek ”
She also suggested to read the book about the Ghan cameleers. “Do you have a copy of ‘Muslim Cameleers’ in Australia?? This is by far the best reference book..
She is very much concern as she said “Sad to learn that the track I have just come through will become a nuclear dump and closed very soon..I am so glad I was able to see it now. Mmm especially as it is for French waste”
