This was my first trip to Palestine, but I’m sure it won’t be my last. My trip here with Zajel has left me with many fun and fond memories. I will always remember the nights spent talking with friends over Argila, dancing Dabka (or at least trying to) and eating so much kanafa it felt like my insides were turning into cheese.
There’s been many a time when the local volunteers considered our behavior strange, but we all managed to mix our cultures and beliefs really well and have a fantastic time together. So many amazing people and such fun times.
