The End

... and so the time has come. To say goodbye to Palestine and to this blog.

It's difficult knowing what to say. Impossible to sum up the past two years in one entry. Suffice to say coming here has been the best decision I've ever made and the the time I spent here a gift.

I don't know what's in store for Palestine or the ever meandering Peace Process. What the future holds for the people who touched me, the children who became mine or, eventually, their children.

I leave it much the same as I found it. Despairing on the verge of hope and full of a life that is teetering on the edge of collapse.

For everyone who has followed these stories, thank you. I wanted to show a side of Palestine that we don't often get to see. The humanity of it, the beauty of it and its relentless grip on life.

It is way beyond me to do it the justice it deserves, but I feel lucky to have been given the chance to give it a go.
