Camel Jumping

While in Yemen recently on behalf of the New York Times to cover a presidential election with just one candidate, photographer Ed Ou took a detour to revisit the region of Tehama in the hopes of seeing for himself stories he had heard years prior about locals there who found sport in jumping over camels. The photos are fantastic. This needs to be an Olympic sport.
