There was a stream of the execrable Arabic, or Chinese, while the bedus stared in astonishment, or incomprehension: then slowly backed off.
I'm longing to see some bedu," Richard said, "preferably some ferocious ones.
But our bedu have an uncanny sense of direction," Richard said.
At length the bedu climbed down and pestered the camels with little sticks until they knelt.
As Martin and Joel explained, again and again, and Richard gave vivid pantomimes of tugging and pushing and collapsing with exhaustion, the bedu listened gravely, carefully examining the car and the wheels, looking stern.
The bedu men turned around to look at her, and a slow change came over them--smiles of a familiar sort as they moved toward her.
The Camel Trek group, guided by Bedus, crossed the Wahiba Sands on camel back in a caravan, following ancient camel caravan routes used by traders long departed.
Grade 7 students journeyed to the Wahiba Sands to study the Bedu way of life by visiting a Bedu family who introduced them to Omani hospitality by sharing kahwa and dates with them.
They enjoyed Omani hospitality including listening to music from the A'ud at Bedu camps, and demonstrated their good citizenship through a beach clean-up exercise.
