During the time that our British friends from Faringdon were in Arura, they helped us pick olives every day that they were present in Arura. Every day, very early in the morning, we would hit the road after a light breakfast, walk quite long distances until we arrive at the olive orchards in Arura. Then, we would start picking olives until lunch time. Because of the bad olive season this year in the West Bank, the amount of olives that could be picked, unfortunately, was very small. However, on the bright side, this gave us more time to enjoy the beautiful nature of Arura sitting under olive trees that are hundreds if not thousands of years old having lunch and drinkning tea while exchanging stories, learning about each others' cultures and languages. In the evenings, after long days of hard work, we shared very special times eating traditional Palestinian meals and drinking tea and Arabic coffee on the patio of my family home in Arura enjoying the nice weather. Then, for several nights, we met with many residents of Arura, who explained to the British visitors warmly, shared their homes with them and enjoyed their company talking with them while having coffee or tea.
