Gaza scenes

Amdist the decay, there is always beauty lurking not far behind.

A view of Gaza from above (the 15th floor to be precise).

As a neighbor to New York City, I caution anyone from thinking a view from many stories high up in a building is a safe view.

I actually think Gaza City is pretty. I sometimes even think I would like to live there, but unfortunately probably some people would think I was an American spy at my age and I would be killed like Tom Fox.

Hi Elizabeth-I'm really sad about Tom. But I don't think Gaza has gotten quite as bad as Iraq, different factors in play entirely. Remember, no one has been killed throughout these banal kidnappings, which have largely ended anyway. I have many American and British friends who live and work in Gaza (one teaches english at the American Internatinal School here). So, by all means, you are welcome to come, :)

Hello Laila! You have a very good eye for positive things where other people would rather concentrate on negative subjects. These kind of photos I would be looking for if I made it to Gaza. Despite all you help the current situation prevented my visit. I even tried Erets crossing in Israel but had no luck.

Your blog feeds my interest about Palestinian life and particularly Gaza where I have friends. It actually gave me an idea to describe my own excperiences in Egypt/Israel which I just started a couple of days ago. Would you mind to let me know if Pat was able to be in Gaza?

These photos make me long to return and live in Palsetine. I haven't been there yet, but I know it's where my roots lie. Because I was born outside, I have no right to return.

These photos are great. And the whole blog page is. I have yet to find another site that reports the daily life struggles the way you do.

Thanks, and please keep it up.
