This blog is run by Mikael Tossavainen. He’s a thirty-something historian with a Ph.D. from Lund University, Sweden. Mikael drinks too much coffee, enjoys clearly substandard music, and envies those who get something out of reading poetry.
So what’s this business about two cities?
Mikael lives in Tel Aviv and works in Jerusalem. Thus, these two opposites are the cultural, political and not least topographical poles of his day-to-day life. That, and anything else that might catch his fancy, is what this blog is all about.
