I encountered this little girl whilst walking around looking for a 12th century crusader fort - which I never found. She ran over with a small box with rocks in it and offered to re-tie my "keffiyeh" - the tradional head scarf worn by the Bedouin men.

Now call me a 'sucker', but I ended up with 3 rocks for 1 dinar!

Petra, Jordan.
