A Blog of Two Cities?
It is the best of times, it is the worst of times — at least to start a blog. On the one hand I really have very little time as it is to write anything of substance, especially considering how much time I spend every day perusing blogs. But on the other hand, very few bloggers seem to be overly concerned by the fact that they don’t write anything of substance — and what makes me any better than them? The simple truth of the matter is that I want to blog, so who is there to stop me? (No, that was neither a challenge nor an invitation to try to block my attempts at virtual self-expression.)
So, about what two cities am I to blog? Needless to say it’s not about London and Paris, since I know little of either and haven’t even set foot in the latter. Neither are we talking about Luleå, Lund or any other Swedish city, town or hamlet of which I might claim to actually know something.
Obviously, the two cities are Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. They are the two opposites in Israeli societal, cultural, economical and political life, but also — and in this context even more importantly — the two poles of my day-to-day life in so many ways.
