The word "Bedouin" means something like "beginning", says Nedal our host who will walk with us on the next day through a desert valley near Jericho to the Auja Bedouin Camp.
He and his family live in a village near Nablus that is also called "Camp" because it was established after the Arab-Israeli-war of 1948 as a camp for the refugees. They had fled from the war in the coastal region which is now part of Israel.
Nedal’s children have secretly prepared a celebration for my 70th birthday and they set the beginning to the night before my birthday "originally" begins. The lunar calendar of Muslims and Jews sees the beginning of a day already at sunset, not at midnight.
