Main camel market in Berkash, 50 kilometers northwest of Cairo | Coastweek

CAIRO Egypt (Xinhua) -- A boy checks a camel's mouth at the main camel market in Berkash, believed to be the biggest camel market in Egypt, approximately 50 kilometers northwest of Cairo. The market continues its business of buying camels from Sudan to meet the demand in Egypt. A camel carcass can provide a substantial amount of meat. The brisket, ribs and loin are among the preferred parts, and the hump is considered a delicacy. The hump contains "white and sickly fat", which can be used to make preserved meat of mutton, beef, or camel. Camel meat is reported to taste like coarse beef, but older camels can prove to be very tough, although camel meat becomes much more tender the longer it is cooked in a traditional spicey marinade over a low heat.

Polocrosse in Gweru, Zimbabwe | Coastweek

GWERU (Xinhua) -- Zimbabweans play polocrosse for the annual Captain Cup in Gweru, Zimbabwe. Polocrosse, introduced to Zimbabwe by the British in 1900s, was often played by people from a rural background or people from white commercial farms. The country once won the World Champions in polocrosse in 1997, and the Polocrosse Africa Cup in 2004. But as the economy plunged into a decade-old recession and white Zimbabweans fled the country, polocrosse saw its decline, with the number of players dropping to around 150 from 460 at its height.
