Portrait of two members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party preparing coffee in the Wadi al 'Umayri. Rai, a member of the 'Ifaar tribe, sits on the left holding a coffee urn upside down. Rai joined Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party in Wadi al 'Umayri as a rabi'a (a local escort who ensures safe passage through a tribal area).
