Make Hummus, Not Walls: More Photos from the West Bank

_MG_0437

I got the opportunity to write about a few days spent in Ramallah for The Concourse — it’s a piece I felt I had to write after the trip, and I’m delighted that they gave me a place to do so. The trip was incredible for many reasons — the kindness of the people we went, the striking claustrophobia of life in the West Bank, and the food.

Here are some more photos from the trip, including some wanderings in Ramallah (and the amazing daily market there), the Wall in Bethlehem, and some shots of the dishes mentioned in the piece. Check out the full piece here.

Mezze galore in Ramallah. M'sakhan, chicken roasted with onions, sumac, cinnamon, and more on flatbread. Exploring Ramallah. Christmas tree in one of the main squares. K'nafeh, melted salty cheese topped with shredded phyllo dough, pistachios, and sweet syrup. Market day in Ramallah. The Peace Restaurant in Bethlehem. The owner (left) told us an incredible story of escaping Kuwait across the desert in the '90s. The Wall, Bethlehem.
