Mrs. Kennedy Rides a Camel in Pakistan

Mar. 25, 1962 - After riding an elephant last week near Jaipur, India, Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy took a ride today on a camel led by Bashir Ahmed, the Pakistani who toured the U.S. last fall as the guest of Vice President Johnson. The five-year-old camel and his beaming driver were introduced to the First Lady in the garden of the residence of President Mohammad Ayub Khan in Karachi. This was one of the last events in Mrs. Kennedy’s two-week tour of India and Pakistan. She is scheduled to fly to London tomorrow on her way home.
