Wacky Bedouin Kids, Beautiful Desert Sunset
The menacing thunderstorm that moved in towards our Bedouin village as we returned from Little Petra ended up changing direction just before hitting; leaving the cluster of homes in the middle of a short-lived dust storm as it suddenly blew north. With little else to do, we ventured back out into the village after the winds had settled.
Taking Aidric on a walk around this place kicks up a storm of its own. Wives, daughters and young children came pouring out of the homes to get a look at our strange little family unit. Quite a sight we are: a blond American, a dark-skinned Latina and a spunky German-looking baby.
Aidric's fan club was certainly in high gear as we slowly traipsed around the tiny village. These kids have so much energy, and move exceptionally fast, despite the occasional lack of footwear.
We were bestowed with a glorious sunset in the rapidly chilling evening air, before heading inside to get warm and enjoy some of our host family's delicious food.
