On my drive from Wadi Feynan to Wadi Musa my Bedouin driver kindly stopped for me every time I motioned at my camera. I personally think he enjoyed getting the occasional smoke breaks while I snapped away in awe. This photo just goes to show you how stunning and surprising this country is. The mountains are spectacular and it all feels untouched.
This drive with my non English speaking Bedouin guide was one of my highlights – especially when he stopped in the desert at a store and motioned that he had to go inside. He came out with 2 cans of Fanta and two chocolate prepackaged cakes, sat back down in the truck and gave me one of each. I was stunned – such a nice gesture; but then again, in Jordan these nice gestures don’t surprise me any longer.
