My Cave Snake Monument

I lived in this cave with a wonderful woman Umm Gersom, who has sadly now passed away. She was one of the last of the Bdoul tribe living full time in the caves. The Bdoul now live in the village of Um Sayhun just outside Petra. This village was given to the tribe in compensation when they were forced by the government of Jordan to move from Petra to preserve this site of antiquity.
