Bedouin girls smile for the camera

I just love this picture. If you ever visit Petra, then prepare yourself for the Bedouin kids of Petra. They will be everywhere trying to sell tourists some small pebbles or other unique souvenir. What really impresses me about these kids is that they speak a minimum of six languages — perfectly. And I do mean perfectly! Since tourism is the source of their livelihood, they’ve made sure to learn the various languages spoken by visitors to this ancient site. Fascinating! Click the picture to visit the Gallery.
