Bedouin

This word is very much literary as it finds mention in many creations in various language. Bedouins are generally divided under a few sub-tribes like- Alagat, Hamada and Gebelieh. Whereas the Alagat folks roam around through the deserts, constantly searching for fresh grazing fields for their camels and goats and water for their families; the Hamada people are basically miners who generally stay in one place. However, the one thing that is common to all the Bedouins is their unparalleled knowledge of the desert. Planning to be a guest in a Bedouin society? Just go for it. These people are very good host and guests are welcomed to a tent for three days and three nights.
