Woman preparing Herbs in Courtyard of St. Gerasimus or Deir Hogla, near Jericho

Contributed by Leyla Zuaiter on 26.02.2006:


“In the courtyard, a table was set up in the middle arch with an enormous aluminium vat on the left. An elderly woman with short grey hair was seated in front of the table preparing herbs. Large piles of watercress, parsley and other herbs awaited her attention. As we left, I learned of some of the touristic possibilities afforded by the monastery. One can stay as a guest in the monastery or one can come on a Sunday with a picnic and rent a table in the surrounding area.” Extract from journal entry March 22, 2005 Original Content Creator: Leyla Zuaiter
