Behind the veil in Wadi Rum
(Duration: one-day-and-one-night, or longer)
This is a combined tour and workshop session, run by Saleh's wife and his mother. In the company of women only, they can remove their veils and talk freely about their lives. You will shop together, cook Bedouin food (in the house and desert), make bread, tea and coffee, learn about natural remedies for common ailments and experience the rythmn and history of life for bedouin women. (It's a good idea to bring photos of your lives to talk about and compare.)
Together you will also go on Tour 1 (Magic of Wadi Rum) or any other tour; a party of women in the back of the open 4x4, with Saleh just driving and helping with translations when necessary. Alia drives too and is learning English.

Saleh's mother, Khadra (which means green), was born in a tent in Wadi Rum and so were her children. She is the herdswomen of the family, taking the camels to pasture and milking the goats as well as passing on traditions and knowledge to her two sons and her grandchildren.

Saleh's wife, Alia, is a full partner in the business. Tradition prevents us showing Alia's face here but amongst other women she can remove her veil and chat openly about her life and why she prefers to live in the harsh beauty of Wadi Rum.
