Inside a Jordanian Home
Long ago the Bedu (Bedouin) in Jordan lived in tents. The sides of the tent could be lifted in order to let more air into the tent. The tent could be closed when the weather was bad. These families had to live in a very harsh environment and had to learn to adapt to survive. They were nomadic herders who had to be able to travel with their animals. Living in a tent meant that they could bring their homes with them everywhere they went.
Not all Jordanians were nomads. Some lived in homes in cities and towns such as Amman. These houses were built of reeds, stones and sand.
Here are some photos of some modern buildings.
