Ahlan wa Sahlan

Ahlan wa Sahlan (welcome) - probably the most common expression I have heard here. You might even say it is overused but it shows how deeply hospitality is rooted in the Arabic culture. Polish people are also famous for their hospitality but comparing to the Palestinians, it is really nothing.

Maybe this is why it is so easy to feel here like at home. And maybe this precisely makes so many people come back to Palestine again and again....
