Wed meetings

Wednesday: Long meeting with Mayor Adli Yaish in the morning followed by a long drive up Mount Gerezim to see the Palestinian Red Crescent Society. What a wonderful setting high up over Nablus. It is in the East of Nablus because the older hospitals are in the West and they are sometimes cut off from the population when Nablus is divided in two by the Israeli army.

At the Cultural Centre for Child Development we heard about their dabke (dancing) and saw a demonstration of it.

Lunch was at the Municipality with more delicious Nabulsi food.

Up the Mountain of Ebal to visit the Palistinian Boy Scouts and Girl Guides Association. They demonstrated their drumming with a parade of boys, gave a presentation from the girls, and gifts. We want to ask the Scouts and Guides in Dundee if they will make links with this group in Nablus.
