Broken Beach (Pasih Uug) is a scenic coastal formation on the southwestern edge of Nusa Penida island. The spot is marked by a hilly arch-like rock formation, which is the distinguishable landmark of the area. Set over the crashing waves of the open Indian Ocean, Broken Beach is a great spot for travel photographers and panoramic view seekers. The adjacent area is also home to grey long-tailed macaques. If you’re lucky, you may spot silhouettes of giant mantas near the surface of the deep blue water.

VANDALIZING IS NOT OK!!! everyone is hurting but by behaving this way the whole point is sadly being missed🥺 #PEACEFULPROTEST 🙏🏻 #citygirlchronicles 📷: #leicaq
The most fun we ever had with camel milk? That had to be in the United Arab Emirates when we visited the Dhafra Camel Festival. Each day there were two sessions of the camel milking competition. It was a fierce competition with the modern technologies you would expect in the Gulf countries. Camel milk is serious business and so is this competition.
The camels were divided by breed and then moved into a pen for milking. Each cow had several trained milkers and a very watchful supervisor. The cow was scanned by a judge with a wand to read her microchip to make sure she was who she claimed to be and to prevent any funny business. Once they were ready to begin, the baby camel strutted in to be with the mama—this was so the mama would drop her milk. A quick nuzzle between the cow and calf and the competition was underway. The calf was moved away from the udder and the milkers worked fast. The frothy milk was collected into large silver bowls and when the milking ended within a few quick minutes, the bowl was carefully carried over to the official judges with scales.
The milk weight was recorded and documented and then released back to the camel’s handlers. This is when the real fun began. This is when you could take a swig if you wanted. (Yes, I did!) And this was when the babies were allowed to eat. The babies gulped the milk like baby camels do—froth flying everywhere when they shook their head, camel milk mustaches and milk commas. Some handlers made makeshift bottles, other just lifted the bowl and the baby gulped.
Despite the seriousness of the competition, the competitors were extremely welcoming. We were allowed to enter the pens, take a shot at milking and interact with the camels. Dad spent his time watching the weights and predicted the possible winners. I could not pull myself away from the babies. And Kyle spoke French with the Moroccan police stationed at the festival. We all had a great time and made sure we didn’t miss any milking times while we were there.
Happy World Camel Milk Day from the Empty Quarter!
