Last night I went to a concert in the Friends School auditorium, one of three times the Palestine Mozart Festival is having a performance at Friends Schools. It seemed like any normal night anywhere.  It was choral and chamber classic night with world renowned musicians, the London (England) Choir and the Jerusalem (Ramallah) Chorus.  The place was 2/3 full and the applause was great.  II was marveling at the quality of the concert and the number of people here to hear it.

Last night I was awakened for the fourth night in a row by gunfire, only this time there was also mortar fire.  I was instantly awake but lay in my bed waiting for it to end rather than jumping out of bed to put my jeans on like a few nights ago.

What a contrast -- last night I was relaxing to music and last night I was tense from gunfire.

Just a normal day in occupied Palestine!
