A mysterious collector of works of art, of Greek origin, who created the largest hidden collection of modern art in Moscow in the history of the Soviet Union, the Kostakis Collection, met in Corfu an Egyptian painter, Abdalla. The painter, much earlier, had attempted to show with his life and his work that the two worlds, the Christian and the Muslim, share the same principles. The collector explained to him that the other two worlds, the Eastern and the Western share, lately, the same value: money.

Palestine, 4 days, end of March 2010. It’s blue sky but still a bit chilly in Ramallah, where I have been for a couple of days. Lively activity outside in the streets of a nice and calm city, 40.000 are here during night, 80.000 during day. The capital of the Palestinian Authority expresses a friendly atmosphere, and energy – waiting for a Palestinian state to be established. Yellow buses, yellow taxis, building work going on everywhere, white buildings, a hilly city with beautiful viewing spots. A city whose economy is very much depending on investments done by rich Palestinians, who have made their money in the Gulf states and return home one month per year.
