Bedouins in Jordan

Day 83, Wadi Musa, Jordan

About an hour outside of Aqaba, we saw our first Bedouin tent. Bedouins still live a nomadic way of life and are allowed to move anywhere in Jordan and surrounding countries (with permission). Their tents are made of goat hair cloth. The number of peaks in their tent indicate their wealth with three to four peaks being moderate. This usually means they own about 20 – 30 goats/sheep and about five camels. They also communicate with each other or mark their territory by stacking stones.
