Saudi Man Gifts Pair of Camels to American Man Who Hosted His Son

A Saudi man gifted a pair of camels to an American man who grew up in Saudi Arabia and considers it his second home. The father of a Saudi vlogger, Thawab Alsubaie, offered the gift of the camels to Atlanta resident Sid Fritts, after Fritts hosted his son who was studying in the United States, the Arab News website reported. Alsubaie posted a video on Twitter of his visit to Fritts, showing his host greeting him in traditional Saudi garb and showing him the Saudi Room in his house, full of memorabilia from the kingdom dating back to the 1970s. Fritts’ father worked for Saudia Airlines in the ‘70s and ‘80s, and the family returned to Atlanta at the end of his contract. Fritts told Alsubaie that: “I have so many wonderful memories from when I lived there as a young boy. I get so emotional when I talk about it because of those memories and the friendships that I made while we were living there.”  Alsubaie’s father earlier this week hosted Fritts at his home in the kingdom and gifted him the camels. “We thank you for hosting our son in the US in the best way possible, and because we cherish you, the most precious thing to us in Saudi Arabia is camels, and we give our guests the most precious thing to us, so here are two camels in appreciation to you from me, my sons and the Saudi people,” he said, according to the report. No word on how Fritts will transport the camels home.
