SPICE ROUTES - IN JORDAN 09
EXPERIENCE- THE BEDOUIN AND MODERN WADI RUM
The bedouin have inhabited the Wadi Rum region for thousands of years,their lifestyle perfectly adapted the the semi-arid enviroment. In the past, they bred camels,goat and sheep on the sand floor and the mountain slopes and lived in tents or in caves. They would move their livestock seasonally in search of grazing areas, management and of the use of wild plnts and animals as food and medicine. The tents woven by the bedouin women from goat,sheep or camel wool are called : housee if hair" in Arabic. They are the most appropriate solution to the environmen and the needs of thosen living in it: the tents can be dismanted to allow free movement in pursuit of grazing locations, have flexible opening to adapt to the changes in wind direction and are naturally biodegradable.
