About me and about cookies

Hi to the amazing person reading my blog!

A bit about me

I am grew up in South Africa and now live in Israel with my husband and two daughters. I have always liked writing and at first want to use this blog to tell my family about my life here in Israel. Instead of writing letters or emails. But they were not all that diligent to reply back to my letters, so I decided to write about my experiences in a blog instead.

That is also why I call this blog "A Letter from Israel" and because I have been a long-time fan of Alistair Cooke.

As I grew up in South Africa one always heard about the trouble in the Middle East and about the West Bank and the Palestinians and the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) and the Mossad...and the odd camel or two. Oh, and also that Israel is 100% a desert!

Now that I am living here in Israel myself I want to share life about a country that is not JUST about politics. Yes, I know it can be difficult NOT to talk about politics in Israel and I sometimes do write about it. The main focus of this blog however will be about anything except politics.

This is a cool country with cool people (Arabs, Jews, Druze, and the Bedoiun and more) doing interesting stuff and I hope that you enjoy reading my posts and experience a different Israel than the one you see on CNN.

No camels at all then..?!

If you ask nicely, I will look for a story about a camel, though I personally have only met one in all the years I have been living here.
