The main event of the festival, the Camel Beauty Competition called Mazayina, aims to preserve the pure bred local Asayel and Majahim camels. Prizes worth approximately US$ 11 Million make for a very exciting competition! From the very young camels to the more mature, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
So what are they looking for in the competition??? Is it perfect eyelashes?
Or maybe it's a perfect nose or nice soft lips. Or than again maybe it's a perfect set of gleaming white teeth!
My name is Cynthia Tomaszewski and I am the designer and owner of Simple Pleasures, a quilt design company with offices in Michigan and the United Arab Emirates. I am also the author of 5 books, "Garden Party - Applique Quilts That Bloom", "Tea in the Garden - Quilts for a Summer Afternoon","Let's Pretend - Whimiscal Quilts for Kids", "Quilts from Paradise", and just released, "Quilting Those Flirty 30's" which are all published by Martingale and Company.
Travel and adventure have been my goals and luckily I have found a soul mate in my husband Mike. We have travelled extensively through out the world, from Mexico, Europe, Africa, and the Far East to the Pacific Basin. After residing in Abu Dhabi for seven years, Mike, my son Zachary, and I took a two-year hiatus and sailed our thirty-three foot Hans Christian sailboat through the Arabian Sea, the Indian Ocean, the Red Sea and the Mediterranean Sea to Spain. I currently reside once again in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates with Mike and our Yorkie Stanley.
