Living in Wadi Rum
with the Bedouins

"One of the most special things about
the Bedouins is the idea of sharing."
(Erga Rehns)



If you think there are only Bedouins living in Wadi Rum, you are wrong.

I met Erga for the first time in 2002 in the house of Difallah, one of the bedouin guides who's also a friend of my husband.


At first I found it weird, to be honest, that an elderly American lady comes to live in the desert but on the other hand I was fascinated by her story.

A few years later, by mere chance, I saw a documentary about her made by Al Jazeera television which I also found on YouTube recently so I can share it with you right here.

The program titled An American Bedouin is split into two parts, both are 11 minutes long.


Start watching them now: they give an insight into the Bedouins' life, traits and values like no other tourist movie can!




One can live on a really small budget in the desert but there are hundreds of offers available for cheap holidays abroad where you don't have to trade in your comfort for low prices.

AMMAN AIRPORT TRANSFER

Amman Airport Private Arrival/Departure Transfer

Reviewed by Donald G, May 2011:

"Driver and vehicle were very acceptable - and in light of the driving/vehicle conditions in Amman this was most welcome. The service is on the expensive side when compared with the local taxi service but, in my opinion, most worthwhile. The driver was welcoming and very helpful. Luggage handling was completely handled at both ends of the trip in a very professional manner. I would definitely use this service again."
