Regen

De regen klettert neer. Sabah al-Ward (morgen van de bloem), zegt de buschauffeur tegen de passagies die zich onder hun regencoats verbergen. De groet klinkt een beetje sarcastisch maar niet te veel. Wanneer de regen valt voelen de mensen zich goed. De regen houdt het land en de planten in leven.

Rain

It is raining heavily. Sabah al-Ward (morning of the flower), says the bus driver to the passengers who hide themselves under their raincoats. The greeting sounds a little sarcastic but not too much because when the rain falls, people here are basically in a good mood. Rain keeps the land and the plants alive.

During a morning in January, I am joining a Dutch group in heavy(...)

“I took a decision that I had to be strong”

Before the second Intifada my life was going well and I was very happy because I had just started a new family. In 1996, I was newly married at the age of 17 after finishing my school. I was young then and so anxious to do things in life. I had my first son after 11 months of marriage so I became a new mother too. My husband and I were very h(...)
