I have been at SO MANY MEETINGS with Kathy the last two weeks. The team in Hebron has been learning about Nonviolent Communication and is in Bethlehem this week making plans for its work next year and it’s interesting if you’re human I guess, but I’d rather be out having fun.
About a week ago, some German Mennonites stopped by and Kathy talked to them about Hebron, then they took us out to lunch at our favorite chicken and salad place! Konrad, the leader of the group who’s wearing the shirt with the peace sign worked for Mennonite Voluntary Service in Cincinnati, Ohio. I especially liked the pink salads!
The next night Gabriel, who’s from Santa Catarina in Brazil made some yummy macaroni and cheese for dinner and a special Brazilian dessert called brigadeiro made of cocoa, butter and condensed milk. Then he stuck eight spoons in it and we ate about half of it. Gabriel finished the rest the next day. Here’s a picture of Maarten an JoAnn eating some with me.
Cory had some days off and went to Tel Aviv in Israel and found some custard fruit in a shop there. It was her favorite fruit when she lived in India. This one wasn’t really ripe, but it was still VERY yummy. Cory says when they’re really ripe they taste and feel just like custard in your mouth. I really, really, really want to eat a very ripe custard fruit. Patrick, our teammate from Wales says they look like dragon poop.
Well, that’s all for now. We had a day off from the strategic planning and stuff happened, but Kathy forgot the camera cord for downloading pictures.Social tagging: brigadeiro > Custard fruit > Maarten van der Werf > Markie > Mennonite Voluntary Service > Mennonites > Nonviolent Communication > Palestine > Santa Catarina Brazil > Tel Aviv
