Cute bedouin girl from Ibra, Oman

It's not easy to take pictures of the bedouin kids, as even if the parents are ok for a "sura", and even if i gave them a polaroid as hadia (gift) the kids were afraid of the camera! So double problem to solve! The bedouin use to put some kol on the eyes of the babies and the kids, it's a way to recognize them easily. They also wear some specific clothes.

Nowadays, they all have 4 wheels, and mobile phones, but they still live thanks to camels, goats etc.
