This was not like the usual 'tourist attraction' of local culture and believe me I have been to a few. This was a great taste of the Bedouin lifestyle from traditional food to making bread; from henna decorated hands to Kohl decoration around the eyes - even my husband's! It was great fun. With comfortable seating we were able to appreciate the food and music. Some of the more adventurous in our group even tried the dancing with a little instruction from our hosts! The people who looked after us were friendly and helpful, especially Fatima who showed us how to make shrak bread as well as decorating us with henna and kohl. The atmosphere of a Bedouin camp was enhanced by the brightly burning camp fire, the towering cliffs and the stars shining overhead. We were part of a tour group, but this is a great addition to anyone's trip to Petra. The quiet, the peacefulness and the fun was magic!
