              It wasn’t really a door; it was an arch in the cement.  Inside, looking around the room, I waited for my eyes to adjust.  The objects began to take shape.  Gradually I realized that this “room” was in fact their entire house.  The floor and the walls were cement: no wallpaper, no ceramic...

    Ten hours, four sets of security, three new stamps in my passport, two take-offs, two movies, and two landings, the bi-annual family vacation to Lyd had begun.
