Inside a Bedouin tent

Inside a Bedouin tent

After we finished touring the camel pens, we were taken to a giant nomad tent, outside of which was an unusual coffee shop (below image). Inside our hosts served us delicious cardamom-scented coffee, sweets and dates. After that, we were treated to an enormous banquet of lamb, pilaf, hummus, köfte, salad, eggplant and more. We ate sitting on the floor and enjoyed every bite!

Thank You Helen for sharing these images. They are so very special, especially to one who is
not familiar with the lifestyle there. V

I love this shot - so exotic - the tent poles look like they have bead work on them - and all the drapery, carpets, etc. are so sumptuous - super composition BV
