The Low Season

52. Ramzi (Beit Sahour)

July 24, 2020

This Friday and we’re in conversation with Ramzi Salsa, a Catholic Palestinian guide who got into tourism between the First and Second Intifadas. This is not the first time his career has been affected by external factors. We talk about pilgrims, dual narratives and putting your whole heart into your work.

 

Conversation from June 20th 2020.
