Dubai, if you can’t tell, is one of the places I’d like to visit
We really didn’t have enough money, enough people, or enough time for our road trip. I almost called it off when I originally started planning it. But there will never be a good time to travel the country for four weeks, just like there will never be a good time to quit your job, read that book, or join a gym. You will probably never have enough money, time, connections, willpower, whatever—to feel ready to make a dream happen. And this is the lesson I learned: eventually you have to stop giving yourself excuses and make the jump.
How I see New York City.
Why don’t dogs get to see the world too?
This dog is literally smiling.
Oh my god

There seems to be some confusion about a couple of things that I’d like to clarify.
When pro-Israelis say that Israel “provides” Gaza and the West Bank with water and electricity, it’s in the same way that your local store “provides” you with groceries. They sell them electricity and water.
It’s also worth mentioning that the majority of the water provided to Palestinians comes from water aquifers in the West Bank. i.e. they forbid us from drilling for water and sell us water extracted from Palestinian lands.
Israel attacked Gaza’s only power plant today. Make absolutely no mistake - their number one priority has always been to collectively punish Gaza’s 1.8 million residents.
