Does anyone who lives in the middle east or have travelled there have any insights for a student who wants to study abroad? I really want to try this immersion thing before I graduate because I feel like it will never happen once I'm trying to settle down and make a living. My parents are so against me going to middle east, but I don't understand why a program would allow students to go to dangerous areas in the first place. I'm currently taking Hebrew, so I would be going to Jerusalem, Israel. I'm not asking how the LGBT scene is there, but how should one prepare for a semester stay there? Thanks!
