Beauty from Palestine: Some Photographs.

I thought it would be fun to share some of the wonderful experiences I had while in Palestine. Not all of the things pictured below are edible, but they are all yummy! Enjoy!

Beautiful tomatoes in my great aunt’s house in Khalil…

Juicy, thirst-quenching loquats off the tree in their garden..Eskadenya!

Steaming hot knafeh, the cheese so stretchy, dripping with sugar syrup!

Wild poppies everywhere!

Pots and pots of ¬†authentic Khalili ‘idrah roasting away in a hot oven…

I walked on ancient stone roads, down winding alleyways, and under dusty arches…

Morning glories drape the walls of the old city in Khalil…

Of hand-made pottery…

… and stained glass…

Crunchy sesame seeds at the press where they make sesame oil…

Then off to Jerusalem, to be greeted by a luscious fruit dish!

With mini apples, baby apples! Little tiny sugar apples…

… that you can cup in the palm of your hand!

The journey towards holiness begins …

… and ends.

So serene…

Always a fresh, wholesome meal waiting at home… thick, tangy yogurt…

… warm, fresh bread…

… and a perfect, pink end to an amazing trip :)

Alhamdulillah!
