Waking up in Wadi Rum

This is the scene that greeted us after spending the night sleeping in a Bedouin cave in the Wadi Rum desert, Jordan. At least, it was called a cave; it was really just an overhanging piece of rock with a little breeze block wall built around the base of it to protect the fire from wind – apart from that it was wide open. It certainly didn’t stop wind from building up and trying to chill us in the early hours of the morning.

It was nice sleeping out under the stars, and waking up to such a sight. We were assured there would be no nasty surprises, such as camel spiders, at that time of year 🙂
