So I am terrible and decided to travel to Palestine and didn’t take my computer to blog about all that I did even though I had the time so in these next days I will be catching up, hence get ready for a lot of posts coming your way.
But first things first. Adesh? Means how much something I was really excited to learn, but I still have trouble with the numbers so when they answer I had to give up and speak english.
So on friday of last week Ode and I decided to have some lunch with him, who is a Palestinian living in Amman and volunteers to take the orphans from the refugee camps to different activities. So yeah he is great.
We had some chicken with rice beneath that was absolutely delicious and luajiyee. (sorry for the terrible spelling of it) But is a kind of green soup which you mix with rice and it came with a piece of lamb and have no idea where I put the photo of it, but here is one I found on the internet.
Of course everything was delicious as always. We talked an walked in the balad and then decided to go to a gallery exposition there where they would be showing a film called Jerusalem, about how the creation of the State of Israel changed the lives of all Palestinians living in this city. We also got to see some pictures from the photographer who documented the life of Palestinians before 1948. Here are some I took pictures of:

The movie was accompanied by some poetry reading and a singer who raps in arabic, which is awesome. Most of the attendees were young Palestinians who can’t go back to their country because they left before the government of Palestine was in place and they received their Ids, for them Palestine feels like home, even though it has never been.
Also they had amazing folklore dresses.
See awesome dresses, definitely going to buy one.
