Visiting Exeter 7th March

All these seven photos were taken in Exeter on the first full day of the Tour.
I was really pleased to meet the group, and felt privileged to take some of them into Devon schools, so that children could hear first hand how life is in the West Bank. It was great to be with them as many of them saw the sea for the first time.
Their personal stamina is striking - they had only arrived into the UK late the day before, had very little sleep, and then had an incredibly long day in Exeter. Which is only the first day of the tour. There's a nice contrast seeing some of them at the beach huts - such a British institution...

So many fond memories and poignent images remain for me from your visit - and I am so glad I got the chance to meet you all!
