First steps.

Merhaba everyone,

Our first week here in Abu Dis has come to an end, and what an exhausting, amazing and eye-opening week it has been. Seeing it, experiencing it is very different from what you hear or what you see on the news.
We've been to Bethany, Bethlehem, Hebron, Ramallah, Jenin and Jerusalem; we have been invited to practically everyone's house here in Abu Dis and have been fed the most gorgeous food.
Palestinians are the smiley-ist people I have ever met, despite the harsh conditions they face on a daily basis. That is probably why people who visit Palestine get so attached to it.
I cannot wait to meet more kids and the students from the different schools.
I can feel that these next 3 months are going to be fantabolous!

And on this note, good night everyone - watch this space.

I'll leave with a picture I took at Aida Refugee Camp, last Sunday; because we have indeed been welcomed in the warmest way possible; with tea, coffee, hot khubz and bright smiles.
