A trip in the Gaza strip II

hey there ppl,

In the previous post we stopped at the zoo ๐Ÿ˜€ … now i’ll move on to complete reporting the discovery journey in the South of Gaza strip which me and my friends had ..

after the southern jungle zoo we headed directly to..

RAFAH BORDER CROSSING !!!

yes, we went there, we went to that dismal place where we Palestinians face humiliation, degradation, and insults..

to the place where people were banned , got separated or even died.

in other parts of the world, the borders and Air ports are places where people go to so excited and so eager to leave to their destination, to go accomplish their business or to study or to just have fun .. to discover the outer world .

but .. not to us, when a person decides to travel here, they automatically think of these borders, remember or else, imagine the kind of humiliation they’re going to go through .. all of the exhaustion and agony they’ll face flash in front of their eyes, so they just fell disappointed. the Egyptians treat us like out casts, .. they treat us not like a neighboring city ! but as their enemy ! weird…

this is the Egyptian side of the Border.. to see that side is Just a dream ! which i doubt will ever come true ..

and so we left the Rafah Border crossing …

a lot of people had their hopes and wishes come true here, others are still hoping ..

anyway .. on our way out of this place we went to Rafah City, just went through the streets,and shops.. as a matter of fact, i’ve never visited Rafah, nor seen it before so i felt there like a baby tourist who get’s astonished at every and anything i see .. ironic how we Gazan’s feel happy on so little things ! probably because the little things we have.. to us are great !

the streets of Rafah..

this was a home, but it was destroyed on the last war on Gaza

this area is a well known place in Rafah, it’s called THE STAR, it all shops

i just liked the scene of these little bicycles ๐Ÿ˜€

this is the star which the area is called the star after .. but as evident the star is bared it’s shell !!! ya it became like this after the war !

me and my friends were really happy to see Rafah because we have never been there before ๐Ÿ˜€

and then we moved on on our way …

and we stopped at a some sort of a resort, a place where people relax, swim and play ๐Ÿ˜€ it’s called “Happy city” > huh, happy city ! we wish !!!

behold the HAPPY CITY

after we have experienced what’s it like to be in a happy city ๐Ÿ˜€ “hehe” and after we lived happily never after for an hour there .. we continued our schedule in this trip … heading to the SEA ..

me and my friends rode this humble boat and we had a big bunch of fun ๐Ÿ˜€ me myself i rode it 3 times ๐Ÿ˜€ but my friends once and after it they felt dizzy, not me ๐Ÿ™‚

me and my friends had a lot of fun in this trip specially that we have never went to the places we went to this time ๐Ÿ™‚
