Moving on

Dear Readers,

since I left Gaza, now almost two months ago, my whole life has more or less been turned upside down. Both from a practical point of view and from an emotional point of view. Even though I love my blogging, there has simply not been that much time for that recently, unfortunately.

But now I'm stepping into "phase two" of my return, being able to harvest some of my efforts during these two months. And, perhaps more importantly, being able to harvest six months of hard personal "work" during my time in Gaza.

So I'm hoping for more blogging coming up.

However I'm no longer "Living in Gaza City"... so it's only fair that I'll go "Living in Stockholm City", where Gaza will be with me at heart. Please follow me there.

I have recently discovered your journal and have gone back and read the entries from the beginning. I've enjoyed it very much, especially your first hand accounts of life in Gaza and your concerns as a wife and mother. I'm looking forward to new entries in Living in Stockholm City.

Hello Imaan,

I'm a blogger from Athens Greece. I found your Gaza blog through the blog of an American living in Greece who linked to the blog of a Canadian living in Albania who linked to a expat in Korea who linked to your blog.

I clicked totally by accident but I'm so glad I did. I read the last couple of entries and was hooked. I realized I too had to go all the way back to the beginning and read the whole blog.

Your style of writing is fantastic, your pictures are amazing and you've given me a totally different perspective of Gaza and it's people. Thanks for that!

Hej Iman!
Läste en del av din blogg och tycker den är intressant. Jag heter Hanna och bor i Småland i södra Sverige. Jag bryr mig mkt om situationen i Israel/Palestina och intresserar mig mkt för hur den palestinska befolkningen har det, så det var intressant att läsa om hur du har haft det i Gaza. Har dock inte hunnit läsa allt än.
Jag skulle också gärna vilja besöka Palestina, särskilt Gaza city och ett flyktingläger på Västbanken som heter Dheisheh. Har en kompis som heter Huda, hon bor i Dheisheh. Förresten läste jag en gång om en tjej som heter just Iman, hon bor Dheisheh hopn med och är 18 år nu tror jag...jag tycker namnet Iman är väldigt fint.

Hoppas du hade det bra i Gaza. Ta hand om dig, ha det bra. kram
