When I told my friend in Mar Elias Refugee Camp that I was going to a wedding, she smiled and said that I would be very happy.
– There are a lot of dancing and singing, and everybody is happy. It’s very nice. She was smiling while she was talking to me. And she was right. The Wedding lasted for two and a half hours, but all the time people were dancing, singing and smoking argile. The Arabic music was loud and it was difficult to talk, but people seemed happy and pleased. It was time to party!

We arrived at eight in the evening. Some guys were standing in the entrance, waiting for the party to begin. Their clothes were shining and colorful. They were the dancing team, dancing traditional Palestinian Dabke. We had to hurry in so that the wedding could start.
The room was big, filled with people in all kind of colorful costumes. They were sitting around tables talking and waiting for the bride and the groom to come. Then the music started and the dancers arrived in the room. They were jumping up and down, dancing all over the room. People were clapping their hands and some minutes later the bride and the groom arrived in the room. The bride was awesome. She wore a beautiful white wedding dress, with a matching makeup. The groom looked handsome in a black suit and white shirt. They were smiling while they were walking in to the room. The wedding party could finally get started.
