JORDAN IMAGES: WADI RUM DESERT CAMP

TOKIDOKI (NOMAD)

One of the most memorable nights of my life, sleeping under a starlit black sky in a Bedouin tent in a place called “Captain’s Desert Camp” in Wadi Rum (Valley of the Moon.)

Wadi Rum has been inhabited by many human cultures since prehistoric times, with many cultures–including the Nabateans–leaving their mark in the form of rock paintings, graffiti, and temples.

In the West, Wadi Rum may be best known for its connection with British officer T. E. Lawrence, who passed through several times during the Arab Revolt of 1917–18.[3] In the 1980s one of the rock formations in Wadi Rum was named “The Seven Pillars of Wisdom” after Lawrence’s book penned in the aftermath of the war, though the ‘Seven Pillars’ referred to in the book have no connection with Rum.
