Leaving Palestine

It is very complicated arranging a visit and it seems it is very complicated to leave occupied Palestine... While we have been busy busy in London getting ready to welcome our guests, they have had to take more time off their schools because, they discovered, the Israelis are closing the bridge to Jordan this Friday, and this Thursday, and having very limited hours (with long expected queues) on Wednesday... So in order to reach us in London on Saturday, they have had to leave TODAY Tuesday.

And then we discovered that, crossing the bridge, the Israelis held up one of the teachers (while the others waited) for about four hours... Not knowing if he would be allowed to cross....

Fortunately, they are all now in Jordan. Hope they have a good time and we wish them all a good rest of the journey and look forward to seeing them all in London SOON!!!
