On our last day in Jerusalem, our Expedition Expert, National Geographic Emerging Explorer Aziz Abu-Sarah invited our group to his family home in the West Bank, where, among Palestinians, Israeli Jews and Americans of all faiths, we ate a meal cooked by his mother, and danced to the music of Middle of the Road, a group of Israeli and Palestinian performers. Aziz and his cousin wow the group in a way that symbolizes the theme of the trip: connecting people, joyously, moves us all in the direction of peace.
Location: Bethany, West Bank
