To Live in Gaza City
More cause for celebration- a new blog about Gaza is in town. The only catch: its in Swedish, :)
It is written by a Swedish woman and mother of two-Imaan-who is married to a Palestinian from Gaza. After living together in Sweden, where they met, for many years, the two decided to make the permanent journey back to Gaza. Of course life there hasn't been all its cracked up to be (well, I guess compared to sanitized Sweden... ) but she's been trying her best to adjust (i exchange emails with her every so often-and will hopefully meet up once I get back to Gaaza).
Check out her blog, if not for entries (unless you want to go through the trouble of translating using an online dictionary like I do) then for her fabulous pictures, which give you a rare glimpse of "ordinary" life inside Gaza-birthday parties, schools, weddings, ramadan iftars, etc:
