Saudi Arabia: Bedouin Desert Tent

The black tents that dot the landscape of Saudi Arabia's deserts are made of woven goat hair and are inhabited by nomads called Bedouins.  Many times tents will have the latest 4WD pickup truck parked outside, TV antenna, and a chimney for the fireplace, like the red one shown here.

The chimney's a bit of a surprise, though the presence these days of a TV antenna or car wouldn't be. It's a hard but beautiful environment they live in. said...

The black color looks like it would be warm.
