A little bit about me: how I got my name, Ben-Shitta?
In 1982 I accompanied a friend of a friend to Eilat to do some snorkeling. I lived in Jerusalem at the time, and didn’t mind the long drive: who wouldn’t want to see and experience the Red Sea.
The long drive took us through the Negev, a desert, with a few trees here and there.
The trees immediately captured my heart: they were alone, they were beautiful, and they were generous in an unusual way.
