Hey, just so my faithful blogger readers know, I have been trying to add some blog posts and new pics (I have some great pics of a trip to Samaria, and of a prayer walk around the Old City and some other things)...however, google says I have reached my storage limit on photos and now need to pay to add more storage. Well, ok, I have been trying to increase my storage limit, so I select my 'plan', but when I click on "continue to checkout" NOTHING happens. I have tried multiple times, but so far no luck.
Sooooo, I just wanted you all to know I have completed this semester's schoolwork. I have packing and cleaning this weekend, then Michael and 2 friends (Kenda and Rhonda from Arizona) arrive on Monday. We will see Israel together for 10 glorious days...I do hope to be able to post pics of our travel together. We will be flying home together, arriving 12/7. If anyone has any ideas about how to add storage to google, let me know:)

A scene out of the bus window....yellow taxis EVERYWHERE!!
The "PLC", I am wondering what will happen here...this should be interesting. By the way, this is a glass door, and something is in the sky in the reflection...I don't know what that is, does anyone have any ideas??
They brought us into a huge conference room, complete with drinks and pastries. We are about to hear a speech from a PLC member. He is anxious to talk to the Americans about their position.
This picture is right behind our chairs....look familiar to you?
Here comes the lunch!! It was this Arabic pizza thing with onions and spices on it that was so delicious.
Lots of congested city traffic.
Three Palestinian young women on their way to somewhere.
Don't ask me why, but here it's "Stars and Bucks", not Starbucks (lol)
Three women stop to talk as we pass, still walking back to our bus.
A man on the sidewalk is playing a crudely-made instrument, hoping to sell one. Wasn't my kind of music, but added to the 'ambience' of our stroll.
Another entrepreneur on the street is drawing a portrait.
Well, this has been quite a day. The sun is setting in Ramallah, and we need to get back to Jerusalem. It may take me a little while to process everything I have seen and heard today.
