Bedouin young men, Jabah, Juliman, Mhana and Mfadi, listening to the conversation during a tribal meeting (Huq) around the campfire in Beidha. This meeting was called to resolve an argument about property and to settle the terms of a divorce. A Huq is the Bedouin's answer to Western civil and criminal courts. "The joys of evening in the desert, seated in a circle around the campfire in the clean soft sand, beneath the sparkling Arab stars or in the still white light of the full moon" (Glubb Pasha - 1948)
