Jordan’s Most Famous Souvenir

These sand vases are Jordan’s most popular gift for tourists. It’s always so much fun watching these things get made. It truly is an art. Very carefully, these sand artists are able to create drawings, usually of camels and the desert to represent Jordan. It usually takes about 15-20 minutes to make a medium sized vase. Each one is about 3-4JD, which is roughly $6. They can write your name, or whatever message you want. I remember getting one for my Chinese friend that said “Made in China”.
So any special requests?
