LWDLIK- The pic above is an example of Palestinian embroidery but not indicative of an item for sale at the exhibition. And take it from an expert (my MIL) the Palestinian olive oil is the best you will ever try, it's rare to find and this exhibit is your chance to stock up.


  1. Thank you for this, I moved recently to Kuwait and was looking for some information about what goes on... I second your 'expert' opinion about Palestinian olive oil and I'm off to buy some..
    Thanks again


Always great to hear from you :O)
