Milk is being sold at home this season – unpasteurized milk. Purchasers come in the morning and boil the milk in their own homes.

The herd wanders lazily below the western slopes of the Rotem settlement on the edge of Wadi Malih, which gets water from the Tubas region.

Today’s escorting was unusual with regard to the paucity of food and the route taken, which was not decided in advance by the herdsman and not determined by conditions on the ground.

We moved around the area. We decided to leave earlier than usual, with the herdsman’s consent.

And we found another kind of home.
