This Should Be Interesting

This is where I started an Arabic course, yesterday. I'm now learning Arabic for a number of reasons that I will likely share in more detail at some point in the future.

Anyhow, since Al Quds University is generally considered a core institution for sharing the Palestinian "reality" with the West, I expected to see and hear things from a different cultural, political and historical view. In one day, my expectations have been met, . . . and more.

This should be interesting in more ways than I can imagine.

I'm jealous about the Arabic study. Can't wait to hear more about your experiences.

I should be able to produce a few interesting entries on this process because after only 3 days, I already have a stack of ideas for posts.

I've finished 3 days of study, and each day has been harder than the previous day. Thankfully, I can immediately use what I learn as I stroll through the Old City. Keeping English, Hebrew and Arabic separated in these conversations has been challenging.
