Tents, past and present

This family used to have thousands of sheep and about 100 camels and horses to carry their tents and all belongings. The tents were self-made out of local materials. They would go on long migrations far into the mountains. Camels and horses are now substituted by pickup trucks and their tents came from UNHCR.
