Barji the camel driver

Meet Barji. Barji is a professional camel trek guide in Jaisalmer, India. I went on a three-day camel trek in the Thar Desert with Barji, his assistant Setu, my friend Lorne and a Quebecois who talked like a cartoon character. Highlights of the trek included Setu catching a passing goat and milking it so we could have milk with our tea, and Barji’s camel running away in the middle of the night. Setu told me Barji was 53, but he tried to pass himself off as a younger man as he wanted to marry me. I guess he figured I wasn’t into older men. Alas, I had to turn him down.
