For more:

Ayden Erjan, 43, has been herding #camels with her husband Aman Muhamet for 15 years in Fuhai County, Altay Prefecture in northwest China’s Xinjiang Ughur Autonomous Region. Ayden hadn’t seen a camel before and didn’t know how to ride a horse or herd camels. After moving to Fuhai County following her marriage, she got to know camels and learned to milk them and ride motorcycles. The couple, both ethnic #Kazakhs, started with two camels but now take care of around 150. “We herd camels every day and never have a day off,” said Ayden. Although tending camels is exhausting, she loves it and the animals. #IntoXinjiang
