Bruqin, Kufr alDik, Sun 18.3.12, Morning
Bruqin, Kafr ad Dik.
We left Kafr Qassem with Nadim at 09:45.
We drove via Bruqin to Kafr ad Dik.
The road was open, the village empty. They had all gone to their daily tasks.
We saw no army presence.
About 20 women had come to Hanan’s club.
We conducted English and yoga lessons at the same time. It was noisy and a little disorganized. The room is fairly small.
The atmosphere was pleasant and good.
On our way back, at about 13:00, the roads were open and we saw no army presence.
