The women decided to provide me with the opportunity to wear a traditional Palestinian dress. The first one was my favorite color, blue, and had lots of embroidery with rhinestones and sequins. As I slipped it over my head, it was so heavy. I then wore a scarf on my head and we were ready for the first photos, by myself and then with Asma's father.
Next I dressed in the traditional red and black embroidery with the traditional Palestinian black and white checked scarf. I felt right at home in this dress.
There were many children there enjoying their time together and laughing with joy at me.
