Snow joke: Mongolian tribesmen take part in a camel race

These pictures show scenes from the winter Naadam festival in Hulun Buir, in north China's Inner Mongolia region. The event showcases Mongolian camel racing.

Horse racing was banned because of a virus in many horses at the time.

To go without racing was just not on, so Camel races filled the gap, typical, an Aussie will always find a way and lets face it we'll bet on almost anything.
