Good tidings...

We've given up trying to call the "ma3bar hotline"-a direct line to some bored-stiff Egyptian border official for the latest news. Inevitably, the answer is always "no 'instructions' from the other side yet."

But today finally came the call we were waiting for-my cousin from Gaza phoned to tell us the border is opening tommorow-for three days only, in both directions! My neighour in Gaza City confirmed it by MSN messenger.

My mother says its because she finally cooked a meal yesterday insteading of us always eating out in case the border opened.

of course, they are still all rumors until we hear for certain from the border...

We bid farewell to al-Arish tommorow morning...
