Wadi Rum Beduin Camp
Disi, Aqaba, Wadi Rum, Jordan
Natarajasana in Wadi Rum After a day long trek down to Petra from Amman, my friends and I made an impromptu decision to spend the night in a Bedouin camp in the Wadi Rum desert. A weeknight - the camp was deserted, except for us. We sat under the stars with the Bedouins, smoked shisha and drank Turkish coffee, then turned into our tents for the evening. We were told that sunrise in the desert was not to be missed. So, I snuck out at 5:30 in the morning to take a walk and - a 7 year yogi - get my morning yoga practice in. My friends caught this picture of me in the distance as the sun came up over the dunes and the sand turned a beautiful red golden color. Pure, peaceful, centering - all at the center of the world.
