After an unexpected morning spent at an Arabian horse show at the invitation of long-time Olive Tree Initiative friend Hisham Majali the olives piled on to the bus headed for the border with Israel.

The day was the  marked by long lines, multiple checkpoints and what seemed hours spent loading and unloading different buses. Due to unforeseen complications, the last members of the trip made it across the border just before 1 a.m.

To make up for the length of this post, here are a few photos from two of OTI5’s unofficial photographers  Matthew Elmaraghi and Tasha Locke:

Thanks to the hospitality of the Olive Tree Initiative’s friend Hisham Majali, the group was able to enjoy Mansef, a traditional Jordanian dish, on one of the last days in Jordan. Credit: Matthew Elmaraghi
