Leaky Pipe Oasis

This one I had to run to the internet cafe and upload... This is a sight from the Karakum Desert on the highway from Turkmenbashi to Ashgabat.

 

There was a camel crossing sign on the road, and behold there actually are camels just wandering around, crossing the road.

 

Everytime there was a leak in the massive water pipe, the animals, camels mostly, would gather and drink. (Humans would also come for baths.)

 

These ones have only one hump. Much more to come, so stay tuned.
