I am here in Jerusalem aftering arriving yesterday. I had quite the experience at the airport getting through security, but I'm not sure yet what is appropriate to write in this blog so I may go into more detail later.
After three days of traveling today I finally head to Bethlehem and get to meet the family I will be living with for the next three months.
For those of you who don't know I am participating in the Palestine Summer Encounter (PSE) in Bethlehem for three months. I will go into more detail about that later as well.
Again, orientation for the program is tomorrow and I will have a better sense of what I can type out into the cyber world and what I better keep to myself. I will hopefully be able to share some of my experiences working for peace and experiencing the culture here in Palestine over the next three months. I hope to keep all my friends and family updated (and to let them know that I am safe), and maybe even begin to write some of my blog in Arabic (hopefully)!
I hope to be able to type more later this week after I get settled in and have a much better idea of what I will be doing in my volunteer position. Until then take care and I hope to hear from you during my time here! Sorry this first post is so dry!
