In the ancient downtown area of Amman, I receive a lesson on how to dress as a traditional Jordanian. The shemagh(شماغ) is a versatile and comfortable piece of clothing. Shading you from the sun, keeping you warm when cold and protecting you from the sandstorms that inevitably blow. The thick cotton fabric is soft and inviting. When the shemagh(شماغ) is wrapped with the face covered, I experience a feeling of safety and protection. The distinct red and white pattern denotes that you are Jordanian. I simply cannot get enough of the Jordanian experience. I must be a bedouin at heart.
