We drove in on a 4-wheel drive, toured around for a while (saw ancient rock carvings, and the place where Lawrence of Arabia used to camp), and then after sun-set we were dropped off at a bedouin campsite for the night. The local bedouin man who looked after us (just the three of us, and our very kind host, who didn't speak a word of English!) made us a delicious meal, and in the morning I woke up to the peace and extraordinary quietness of the desert, and a spicy cup of bedouin tea. A pretty special and memorable birthday.
