I have in the past been heard to say that i wanted to live in a bedouin tent- little did I think i would spend the night in one! This bedouin encampment was outside of palmyra and came replete with chickens, dogs, a cat, quite some camels, sheep, goats and a horse!
This gorgeous girl was one of the younger women in the camp- so even in the desert without running water and mirrors you can do eye make-up!
That evening we were entertained by some local musicians, one of whom had been to Australia to play his music. You can also see the inside of the tent decorated with embroidery made by the women, who sadly couldn't join us because of local custom that the women cannot be present in the presence of non-family members.
