Ignoring the pleas of city officials, businessman and residents, the Swedish city of Gothenburg is preparing to build a camel park to help Muslim immigrants integrate into society.
The park, which is scheduled to be located in the immigrant-dominated neighborhood of Angered, the city believes the park would help alleviate cultural differences while also becoming a must-see tourist destination.
The man who initiated the project is Gezy Naga, believes the park would not only give the primarily Somalian and Middle Eastern newcomers a place to find economic relief at a relatable workplace, but pump money into Gothenburg’s economy.
“Tourism will become the largest source of income [for the park],” Nagy told Swedish newspaper the Goeteborgs Posten. “There is a huge interest in camels both in Sweden and abroad. We expect that tourists will come from all over the world, including Japan and China.”
Nagy also mentioned his intentions to build stables for the camels, as well as purchase the camels and llamas required for the attraction.
On the other side of the aisle are men such as Bert Karlsson. “This must be a joke,” Karlson relayed to the Posten. “…it will never work in reality. That is what you have to do on the tourist trip abroad when there is nothing else to do. You ride [a camel] once and then you will never come back.”
