New York Morning

It's 9.16 a.m. and New York is crowding around me. Brownstone buildings, construction sites, black and white One Way street signs, yellow cabs, cars and people.

Three weeks ago my closest neighbors were sheep and goats and I had a donkey wake me up in the mornings.

That was Palestine. This is New York. Palestine was all sun and olive trees and hummus and falafel and friends and strangers and soldiers and long rides in taxi mini vans and music and open arms and a thousand different world views.

New York is a whole other place and on Monday morning I start my internship at the United Nations Headquarters. I'll tell you more as time passes.

Until then.

Love you too! xox (because I think I have a pretty good idea of who you are, even though you don't use your real name... unless your real name is bloggerx, in which case I have no idea who you are at all)
