Sleeping in Bedouin Tents
Who are the Bedouins?
Later in the night, the students learned all about the Bedouins and their traditions.
“Badui” means dessert. The traditional Bedouin lifestyle is to live in the dessert. The students learned that Bedouin’s are not afraid of the dessert, they know how to find their way, how to find animals and how to find medicine and plants with healing qualities.
For the Bedouin’s having guests is a great honor. They taught the students that their forefather Abraham loved having guests and they consider themselves to be just like him. The Bedouins played a traditional instrument for kids called “sumiya.” They students also enjoyed Bedouin coffee and tea tasting.
