A bit about me . . . .

Hey friends and also for anyone who might happen to find this blog, I am presently in the West Bank, Occupied Palestinian Territories (oPt). I will stay here for 5 months and am loving it at the moment. The people are very hospitable and welcoming and willing to talk to you and answer any questions that you may have. I don’t feel like a foreigner here and have been allowed to make it my home. The sights and scenery is quite spectacular and sometimes it is like walking through history. However, its quite difficult to comprehend living under an occupation unless you have done so and the effects of an occupation on the everyday activities in your life are severely restricted. Every move must be considered as travel is restricted for me, however ever more so for the Palestinian people who have no freedom of travel whatsoever. Hence, the reason for this blog, to inform you of my experiences but more importantly to inform you about the lives and experiences of the Palestinian people living here. Please feel free to add comments and please if there is anything that is not clear, send me your questions. Peace and justice.
