Shepherd in the Desert

When me Adel, Mum and rammi were driving to the Dead sea for the day we saw loads of tents, people and sheep in the middle of the desert in sporadic places. We decided to stop and go up to one, Rammi spoke tot he guy in Arabic for us and he was real friendly and let us have a look round and i took some photos. he showed us this real cute baby lamb that was born that day. Rammi told me these are proud people with their own strong culture who live in there communities out in the dessert and mountains keeping sheep. He said they are quite wealthy as there sheep are worth alot of money but don't want to live in the city and prefer a simpler life in the desert. This man lived in the tents with his mother but they often socialise with people in other camps in the dessert. Heres the photos:
