  1. love it! Two thoughts: First-I LOVED my dinky little nokia that I used while I was in the West Bank. Best reception I’ve ever had. Go figure. Second-Nescafe is a big Palestinian thing too! I was like, “JUST GIVE ME COFFEE” and they’re like “Nescafe?”

  2. Wait, I don’t know what happened to my original comment! I made an observation that dinky nokias are AWESOME and when I had to use one in the West Bank, I had the best reception ever. Also, Nescafe is big in the Palestine too! When I asked for coffee, they’d be like “Nescafe”?
