Winter Story

I woke up this morning by the whistling wind...very early actually, to a REAL Winter day considered Israel, ...In my area 13 degrees celsius, VERY WINDY...Stormy and Rainy.(other parts of Israel SNowy as well ) I was not sure if to send my kids to school at such weather...but then I remember ALL those who live in far away places, where it is surely SO MUCH MORE cold, and realized that...Perhaps it's better that they'll go... It seems, I was not the only one, who was not sure if to send to school or not :-) Because most Israeli's are made of "SUGAR "...They melt in rain :-)) !!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Photos taken in Jo Alon's Center, Negev, South of Israel.At the museum of bedouin's Clture. Hand Weaved rugs, that was done by bedouin women. Surely these women work so hard, in a very primitive way to achieve this BEAUTY of folklorist weaves.They work so hard to support their family and bring the bread home. Sometimes in difficult weather climate, in their temporary homes. Copyrights (c) Nira Dabush & Bedouins women
