Bedouin Village

Bedouins were nomads on the desert. However many have now settled in vilages such as Lakia the one we visited. Our hostess explained how she has created a workshop for Bedouin women. The village workshops are supported in part by Grand Circle Travel. We were served lunch and visited the workshop.
