As budget travellers we couldn't afford more that one night stay in the desert camp. After taking a great tour with WWR's friends from another company, we were offered an overnight at Eid's house in the village which we very much appreciated. The other option was to sleep outside under the stars but it gets really cold during winter nights in the desert...
It was the New Year's Eve and we were getting ready to go to sleep around 5 pm when Eid's son came to tell us we're invited for a dinner and celebration in their camp in the desert. We set off for an adventurous jeep ride in the darkness to the camp and we spent there a wonderful night in the company of bedouins and other travellers. Everyone from Eid's family tried to make the New Year's Eve special for the tourists, they performed some of the bedouin music and dances for us and we had a great dinner and litres of tasty tea.
Big thanks to Eid's family, we really appreciate your great hospitality. We hope to come back to Jordan someday and meet you again.
