This Jew spent Easter Sunday in Duhok (a Kurdish city near the Turkey-Iraq border), where Newroz decorations were still up.
She spent Friday at Lake Dukan at a seyran (Kurdish all-day picnic) with 30 Kurds from work.
A week ago she finished up her 2-week travels in Athens, having gone to Greece (Delphi, Nafplio, Mycenae, and Lesvos) and Turkey (Diyarbakir, Selcuk, Kusadasi, Serince, and Ayvalik).
Now, she is desperately trying to catch up on sleep and eat a few home-cooked meals before resuming her weekly Friday day-trips.
She is very, very happy.
