On a field trip to Israel last month with students that I teach at university in Budapest we sought out refugees from Russia and Ukraine who have fled the war to make the Jewish state their new home. We found them divided over the rights and wrongs of the war back home even as the Palestinian conflict is nipping at their heels.
I've visited Israel just three times, and I only really got to see the donkey sanctuary where I volunteered. Interested to read about your visit and some opinions we don't get to hear. Lucy's UK Donkey Foundation helps to run the sanctuary (Lucy Fensom) and is worth a visit.
Hi Julius, so great to get your 'on the ground' perspective about places and countries we hear about and have never been to. The energy you have for travel and connecting with any one to get their stories both of the locals old and new. We know so little of what is really going on for day to day life that it really helps to keep some perspective on it all. Be safe and carry on! All the best Pauline Kendall
