This from All Nations Cafe:
Last December, before the winter, we had our first Ein Haniya Fair. Ever since then, farmers and conscious consumers have been waiting for the fair to return.
Next week on Friday, May 9th, starting at 10 am:
Local farmers’ and shepherds’ organic produce, home made food, arts and crafts, and live music.
It’s all happening at Ein Haniya Spring, on the Wallaja/Har Gilo road between Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
Getting to Ein Haniya Spring
Coming from Jerusalem, you go to Malha train station, near the shopping mall (which is easily reached by Jerusalem city buses 4,5,6,17,18,24,31,160-167,440) turn to the railway station and follow the Wallaja road to Gush Etzion. After crossing the railway line you can either hike a few kilometers or easily hitchhike with any car going in that direction. About a kilometer after passing a checkpoint you will see a dirt road on your left hand – the spring market is a few meters up that road.
Coming from the West Bank and from Gush Etzion, you go from Beit Jala and Har Gilo towards Wallaja and Jerusalem. Down the steep road to the bottom of Refa’im valley, you see Ein Haniya spring on your right.

What is it with chefs and manifesto these days? Seriously. We get it. You don’t just randomly put stuff on plates. You’ve got a grand idea. But you know what? Sometimes all we care about is if your grand idea tasted any good. Because if it isn’t, then it’s just a big pile of crap.
Chez Pim – “L’Esguard: quite possibly the worst meal of my life”
the power of visualization…
Human life histories, as compared to those of other primates and mammals, have at least four distinctive characteristics: an exceptionally long lifespan, an extended period of juvenile dependence, support of reproduction by older postreproductive individuals, and male support of reproduction through the provisioning of females and their offspring. Another distinctive feature of our species is a large brain, with its associated psychological attributes: increased capacities for learning, cognition, and insight.
And where does it all come from?
Our theory is that those four life history characteristics and extreme intelligence are co-evolved responses to a dietary shift toward high-quality, nutrient-dense, and difficult-to-acquire food resources.
You know, its not easy finding a decent meal. You need big brains for that.
In the right hand corner:
In 1987 British Rail proposed building a new concrete and steel rail viaduct through the historic Borough High Street Conservation Area – the scheme required demolition and part demolition of 20 listed buildings, the Green Dragon court, and part of the market roof. Assisted by a legal team of seven including three barristers, plus thirteen specialist witnesses
In the left hand corner:
Local community groups – Cathedral Area Residents Association (CARA) and Bankside Residents Forum (BRF) opposing the Thameslink 2000 upgrade through the Borough Market area. Assisted by a lawyer and a barrister, a transport expert, an historian (all working pro bono) and 10,000 petition signatories.
The Government (Department of Transport and the Department for Communities and Local Government) has given permission and legal powers to Network Rail for this massively destructive project to build an additional viaduct through the Borough Market area.
