Listening to the silence of the Arabian Desert, as I visit Jordan by night, I am dumbfounded at its deafening stillness.
Israel, Qatar, Jordan... The Middle East
That enormous piece of territory often overlooked as a whole and, usually, only seen as the land of the greatest and most beautiful deserts, endless bazaars of spices, and the warm welcome of the Bedouins. The Middle East is composed of 14 different countries that differ massively from each other, have boundaries, and share borders. The middle East includes Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.
