News from Tuwani
I haven't said much about what's been happening in Tuwani here. For once that's because things have been fairly quiet. We are expecting that to change, as settlers have started talking about a "price tag" campaign in the south of the West Bank. But, for now, things have been mostly quiet...for the Tuwani area. Settlers have thrown rocks at Palestinians, they've destroyed a fence, and grazed their sheep on land that Palestinians planted. But I'm thankful that's been the extent of their activity. Here are some of the other things that have been happening in the village:
1. The harvest is pretty much finished! Everyone is happily tired.
2. We're in the middle of celebrating the wedding of one of the young men in the village. I really enjoyed the party last night. I was pretty thrilled to be able to understand the songs the women were singing and actually join in.
3. A good friend of mine is pregnant!
4. It's wicked hot. Really. I'm hoping that the heat breaks soon, as this is still a little early for it .
Hope the wonderful, unoccupied force we call life is treating you just as well.
