Time goes by very quickly, especially when you work in the ICRC, and when your 30th birthday has passed. After a long but short time in Sierra Leone and Liberia , the next adventure has has started in Jenin, a small ICRC office in the Palestinian territories. Much to be learned, and quite a change from Western Africa. Shops and credit cards in Jerusalem, field officers who speak more languages than me, a culturally challenging environment, and much more. No beer-drinking with field officers like in Liberia, I am afraid (see picture), and internal curfew in Jenin at 18 h.
However, also no more “Monday morning blues”, since our weekend is Friday/Saturday (Muslim and Jewish holiday). 🙂
That’s all I can say after just a few days – hope to stay in touch with you.
