Lawrence of Arabia’s tree

Lawrence of Arabia

This lonely tree is in the spectacular Wadi Rum, Jordan: location for much of the filming of the 1962 classic, Lawrence of Arabia, and the real T.E. Lawrence passed through Wadi Rum many times. Our Bedouin guide – pictured in this earlier post, photographing the desert sunset – was happy, for a small fee, to show us ‘special’ filming spots!

    Ah, the small fee. I’ve encountered that many times in my travels. Rather surprisingly (and somewhat ridiculously), a quote from Frank Zappa comes to mind (from Cosmik Debris):
    The mystery man came over and he said I’m outta sight.
    He said, for a nominal service charge, I could reach Nirvana tonight.
    If I was ready, willing, and able to pay him his regular fee,
    He was willing to drop all his pressing affairs and devote his attention to me…
