My decision to travel to the West Bank and get a glimpse of life in Palestine was mainly based on a chance to enhance my own learning experience. Having just begun part time studies in an MA in Anthropology and Development, it seemed like a great chance to see first-hand what it is like to be Palestinian and how this word “occupation” impacts on daily life.
