Dune bashing and camel bonding with Peter Brown

Author/illustrator/friend/adventurer Peter Brown and I (and, joining us a day later, Meghan McCarthy) are in the United Arab Emirates for the Sharjah Children’s Book Festival…and for dune bashing. Which means treating the desert like a roller coaster.

It is not for the faint of stomach.

The race is on to see who will be first to change his Twitter handle to @dunebasher14.

 Not in the desert quite yet. Maybe the strip mall in the background gave that away.

Peterama. Including oil rig. Or drill. Not sure.

 One of the cutest things I have seen in a while: 
a girl of about three taking a photo of her mom.
Our dune-bashing ride is in the background.

Hawkman. Actually, it is a falcon.

Johnny Depp in The Lone Ranger.

This guy spun in a circle for what must have been at least five minutes straight...
and did not show any dizziness.

Still in the desert, though you have to take my word for it.
