I wrote earlier about exploring the Wadi Rum and how much fun it was to ride around in the back of a pickup truck and admire the magnificence of the landscape of this unique desert. What made that day even better was how it ended that evening.
We stayed at a Captain’s Desert Camp camp, I am not really sure where in the Wadi Rum, somewhere surrounded by the giant rock formations typical of the Wadi Rum, if that helps any… The camp was mostly candle-lit at night and the night consisted of enjoying our dinner outdoors, listening to Bedouin music, some dancing, and a lot of star-gazing up above. It was a wonderful experience.
The tents were spacious and just had the beds – nothing fancy. The camp had bathroom and shower facilities that, though basic, were not too basic (says he who went a week without showering going up Kilimanjaro…).
In any case, it was the evening activities under the stars that made the night so memorable for me. The night started with music and Bedouin bread-(“shrak“) making.
Then it came time to get the food out: the meats and vegetables were cooked covered up and underground.
No pictures of dinner itself as this traveler was starving and eating -not my blogging- became the focus. My apologies 🙂
I close with a picture from the next morning of the comfy area (with its great backdrop) where we had listened to the music by the campfire and had enjoyed our dinner under stars in the amazing Wadi Rum – an experience not to be missed during a trip to Jordan!
