Mon. 28. [28 April 1902] It is Passover and I can get no bread but
massa. Went onto the top of the hill where there are the ruins of a
Crusader fort and had a most magnificent view. Met the Nassars.
Najib came and saw me off. Left about 7 with a guide and rode round
the hilltops to Meiron [Meron] where there is the ruins of an old
Synagogue - much carved stone eagles and things on it - and a new
Synagogue. Then down a valley full of water, round the hill top with a
magnficent view and down into a valley full of flowering olives. At 12 I
lunched near a big Druze village. On through flourishing valleys and
over the last hill above the Akka ['Akko (Acre)] plain through which we
had a long boring ride on very tired horses. Got to Akka about 5 and
fortunately found a carriage into wh I hopped and drove home. Miss
Ramsay and Miss Thomson arrived by boat.
