their own traditional songs, but also "You`ll Never Walk alone".
Learning Bedouions to sing the Liverpool song "You`ll Never Walk
Alone" was something special. Bedouins are still practicing old musical
traditions. In a big tent far out in the desert I had with a great time playing
music and singing along with them.
My choice for a song was "You'll Never Walk Alone". I told the Bedouins about
Liverpool Fotball Club, but also about the people`s life, culture and unique
hospitality. The Bedouins are really a great people too. They also have an
unique hospitality and good guts just as the citiziens in Liverpool.

It was enjoyable to tell them about how this song lifted Liverpool F.C
to great heights after the supporters song it so enthusiastic after the first
half against AC Milan in the Champion League Finale this year (2005). The
Italian team leaded 3-0, but in the second half Liverpool turned the match and
equalised to 3-3. In the penalty shooting Liverpool finally won the long and
The Kop, the legendary part of Liverpool F.C. football stadium (at right).
It amazing how emotional touched people become of this song is, and how it
reaches across all boundaries across the world. There are so many stories
relating to this song, and so many memories cross my mind each time I sing or
hear the beautiful song. This is the anthem for supporters of Liverpool Football
Club, but it means so much more for people in Liverpool. For the Bedouins in
Jordan it also means something special......
It's long time I heard about Bedouins and other Jordanians reputation for
being especially friendly. Through my 2 weeks journey in July 2005 in Jordan I
was never asked about religion or other sensitive matters. What really counts
for the people in Jordan is the visitors' personality: attitude and behaviour!
This people friendliness it's not only experienced by me.
As Lonely Planet writes on its website: "Jordan is, on the whole,
peaceful. More than that, it's one of the most welcoming, hospitable countries
in the world. Where else could you leave your belongings on the street for hours
at a time, and find them there when you get back? Where else do total strangers
with nothing to sell invite you into their homes?" As the Bedouin Ibrahim
said to me: Hate and fighting is just waste of life!
In Jordan the probably the biggest sin a person can commit, is not giving food
and drinks to a person who really need it. See for yourself how Lonely Planet
considers people from Jordan and the country: Lonely Planet -
How it is to go to Jordan and Liverpool is perfectly described in the song
"Ferry 'cross The Mersey", which is about Liverpool and the people there.
One of the top Liverpool beat groups of the early 1960s, Gerry and the
Pacemakers, had a big hit with this song. The lyric in song goes like this:
So ferry 'cross the Mersey
and always take me there
the place I
People around ev'ry corner
they seem to smile and say:
care what your name is boy
we'll never turn you away!
I am absolute sure that the Bedouins and other Jordanians in general
will impress other travellers than me. I will just say to them: Walk
on with hope in your hearts, and you'll never walk alone - in Jordan! The
inhabitants will take good care of you!
Liverpool Fotball club is among the best
team in the world. The club`s number of triumphs are numerous. But it stretches
so much further than that.......
