      ... of camels grazing by the roadside. It would appear that the grass is greener on the other side in this part of the world too. Apparently very few roaming camels are wild. Most belong to somebody and are identified by a fabric collar around their necks.

      *Hitting a camel would seriously damage the truck so AG takes extra care.

      *The Turmenistan border town of Dasoguz also boasts wide tree lined boulevards and a few ambitious architectural features. But of course ...
