Fridays are demo day in Palestine. It's the weekend but not yet shabbat so religious Jewish Israelis can participate in solidarity.

We had a wonderful day. It was great to meet Abu Nizar and his family. It was great to see Rani, his father Waji and the rest of their family. The weather was beautiful, the food was amazing, the conversation was interesting and everyone was so friendly. The only thing I don't love about Palestine is the occupation.
