    A Walk in the Garden with Shimon Peres

    As we wrap up our coverage from the ”Opportunity: Investing in the Middle East” series, I wanted to share my experience with President Shimon Peres of Israel.  After we completed our interview inside the residence, he took me for a walk through the gardens.  He told me the garden was what he thought best represented the Jerusalem compound.  He showed me the tree he planted with the Pope on his last visit, the table where heads of state gather for pictures, and a tree that was half olive and half fig.  I asked him how a tree could be both fig and olive, and he replied, technology!

Cheryl, I think Israel invented drip irrigation. The story was they wondered why this tree was growing larger than the others duting a drought. They found out that a leak was in the hose. They developed smaller emitters to get the water closer. Sometimes, desert culture necessitates innovation Have a safe return BobH
