Plenty of desert, little water, not much land for agriculture: Jordan is a country with extreme living conditions. The knowledge of the Bedouins shows us how to handle nature with care.
Abu Mohamed is the head of one of the Bedouin clans in Jordan and a walking plant encyclopedia. He can tell you something about every species.
A visit from relatives. Abu Mohamed's cousins want to have a celebration in his honor. There is quite a lot to discuss.

And the foals have plenty of space to roam.
The Bedouins' livelihood is livestock. Abu Mohamed's herd includes 700 sheep and goats. Since the soil is meager and depleted, the herds migrate from one pasture to the next.
At this time of the year, the animals are at their summer pastures near Ain Ghazal not to far from the capital Amman.
Abu Mohamed has disappeared into this tent to mourn with relatives. That means: waiting!
