Jack Giacaman, a Palestinian Christian and the owner of the Olive Wood Factory, was diagnosed with cancer and needed treatment at the hospital in Jerusalem.  As a resident of Bethlehem he needed a special pass to go there (something like a 15 to 20 minute drive).  After lots of waiting and delays, he finally got the pass ... but it was for the wrong day!

Sorry, a dark shot of me ... inside the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem ... supposedly I'm sitting next to the site where Jesus was born.  

This is actually a photo from Baghdad taken right after the Tigris River Trip.  I'm inside the Mudhif at the home of Sheikh Ayad Jamal Al-Din.  The picture is by Dana Smillie, a very nice photojournalist based out of Cairo.
