Arabia With Levison Wood

Season 1, Episode 3 of 5

Writer Levison Wood explores Saudi Arabia, meeting the men and women who live there as he learns more about the culture. He then makes his way into Jordan. He does his best to understand this contradictory country, but he's not allowed to do more than scratch the surface. There's a surreal moment, though, when after having his head prettily garlanded with flowers, Levison is casually asked by one of the notoriously fierce Asiri tribe for a photo for his Instagram page. And if you think inflation in the West is bad, seeing people pushing wheelbarrows piled high with cash in Somalia will make you think again.
