Bedouin Making Flat Bread ("abud") in Traditional Manner

While hiking in the Dana Biosphere Reserve I met a Bedouin living there in tents with his two wives. He offered to make abud in the traditional way. After kneading the dough and flattening into a circle, he buried it in the embers of a wood fire in the dirt. The bread was delicious.
