This morning in Palestine--the tail-end of September, the Eid al Adha approaching this coming Saturday--it began to rain. Six months ago this happened, and then came the sometimes oppressively hot, always dry, forever beautiful summer, which shone sun on all of Juthour's plants and animals.

One of these was Discovery Days, where we introduced a full immersion of green…Continue
