My girlfriend is currently volunteering in Gaza. I asked her to send me the odd email with her observations as a way to share an on-the-ground view of what life is like in this embattled place. This is the first set of photos she’s sent from there.

    Seriously – that tiny door is the entrance to Gaza. I’d heard it was pitiful, but that’s unbelievable. Good luck to your friend.
