Audrey Tries to Grind Wheat with an Al Raha - Zikra Initiative, Jordan

The al raha is a traditional wheat grinder made from two circular rocks, the bottom is fixed, while the top one is loose and is spun around with the wooden handle to grind the wheat. Quite a lot of hard work after a while...my arms got a bit sore. Taken as part of a visit with Zikra Initiative to the community of Ghor Al Mazra'a near the Dead Sea in Jordan.
