So who is Jerico?

Actually Jerico is a city, populated since ancient times,  is a city located near the Jordan River in the West Bank of the Palestinian territories.

 It is believed to be one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world.

Jericho is described in the Old Testament as the “City of Palm Trees”.

 It is known in Judeo-Christian tradition as the place of the Israelites’ return from bondage in Egypt, led by Joshua, the successor to Moses.

So I named my only son Jerico…

My son Jerico can eat atleast a kilo of banana any time. So I named this bread after him.

Jerico is a very energetic kid, talks like a little man and above all, he’s a Mama’s boy… 😉
