And between them lies the wall...

A wall runs through the Holy Land, separating the West Bank from Jerusalem. Yet, the wall runs through Palestinian neighborhoods, not just separating Palestinian and Israelis. 

I feel like I understand the conflict here so much more since being here.  This didn't take much, because the first day I got to Jerusalem, I realized I didn't know anything.  But I do know for certain one thing, I love this city!

Silence is Foreign to me.

Now, don't get me wrong. I love everyone here. But tonight, I felt kind of like I was standing in the middle of here...
So I did this...
Try it.

Another day, Another year

Dear 21
In the 24 hours of knowing you, I am excited for our time together.  You came in with a bang, and I think you'll stay this way.  Roommate snuggle time, balloons, seeing his face, a card from home, and a story from Paris.
I could have ended here, and I still would be in love with you.  But, of course, you came back for more.  Thirteen girls in the van, dancing with the Jews on the street, Thai food, a stop at Aldo's(the best gelato), and my own personal rap on the streets.
