Culture Vulture – Of Horses And Camels

Karachi is famous for its black-sand beach, and owing to the frequent oil spills, it keeps getting blacker by the day. But that is not what fascinates me about it. Its rather the culture that has developed at the beach, it being the only (affordable/accessible) source of outdoor activity for the otherwise entertainment-starved Karachiites.

The beaches here are abuzz with uniquely interesting sources of entertainment. With the kids flying kites and the families bathing/swimming in the sea, you will be able to spot tens of oont-walas (camel riders) and ghoray-walas (horse riders), willing to sublet their pets to you for a mere 10 to 20 cents per ride for an experience that will last you a lifetime. Here’s a glimpse of my city. Enjoy!
