How Lisa Came to Israel
Lisa was born 37 years ago in Canada, but a few years ago moved to Israel and now blogs from Tel Aviv. Her blog "on the face" is a very well written collection of her reflections on life in a beautiful, hectic, and frequently anxiety-provoking place. Recently, she began a series called "How Lisa Came to Israel" which recollects her life between 2000 and 2002 when she moved to Israel just as the intifada exploded. It's terrific reading and a good reminder that the headlines we read from half a globe away are about real people who are trying to construct ordinary lives in extraordinary places.
