Middle East March 16 2014
The famous head scarfs that we used to call "Palestine scarfs" are used as head cover all over the Middle-East in different colours and prints. When travelling by bike from Amman to Aqaba in Jordan I saw them used mostly in the area of the beautiful ancient town of Petra. Also when strolling around in Ramallah and Hebron in Palestine the scarf is a common sight, especially for older men.
Unfortunately it continues to be one of the most tensed regions in the world, but it is definitely a beautiful and friendly place for travel.
