We're back home!

Saturday: We had a fairly uneventful return journey. Only three checkpoints to negotiate, and the airport security checks. These were as thorough as expected with Julia being given a most intensive search apparently because she was a student in Jordan for a couple of years.

Returning to Dundee on a Saturday night was a sharp contrast. Much colder than Nablus, people walking carefree through the streets with many clearly drunk (alcohol is almost completely absent in Nablus) and the young women showing off most of their bodies despite the cold (in Nablus most - but not all women - are veiled and there is a universal prohibition on showing any part of a woman's leg).

We're a bit sleepy so I will post some reflections tomorrow as we reflect on our memories.
