Ever wonder why you decided to live in a third world country, even though you can live in the Goldena Medina? Would you also, like me, be a millionare if you had a dollar for every time someone asked you why you’re still here if you have an American\British passport? Or do you actually live somewhere normal, but are strangely attracted to the lunacy of the Middle East? If so, you’ve come to the right blog.

Forget about all your favorite pundits. Nobody knows you like me. Together we’ll figure out why you count in English but dream in Hebrew (or vice versa…). Why you live in Israel but feel like Obama is your leader. Why you live in the States but constantly dream of finally landing a normal plate of hummus. Admit it, you’re just like me – you’re half & half…

This blog is where you and I meet half way. Where West meets Levant…

My name is Ami Kaufman. I’m 36 years old, I’ve scribbled a bit in journalism, been eaten alive by the restaurant industry, heard myself on the radio, was lost in translation, and am currently drowning in numbers.

Married to the beautiful Karen, and father to Princess Emma and Princess Lea (not the one from Star Wars).
