MARE NOSTRUM — THE ARAB WORLD

“Today I have come bearing an olive branch and a freedom-fighter’s gun. Do not let the olive branch fall from my hand. I repeat: do not let the olive branch fall from my hand.” 

— Yasser Arafat, speech to the UN, 1974

I was fortunate to travel the most misunderstood part of the world for a month, and this is what i got in return : A head full of beautiful thoughts, feelings and experiences ; enough to break the western cliché that the mass media wants to set about the Arab World.
