In December 1994, at a time of intense political initiative for peace in the Middle East, Bettina Selby set off on ajourney from Cyprus to the Holy Land. Riding her bicycle wherever possible, she traveled through Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan. Her final destination, Jerusalem, was a city she knew and loved, so much so that the political turmoil of recent years had made her unwilling to return.
Now, spurred on by the Jordan/Israel peace treaty and an audience with King Hussein, Bettina felt that at last perhaps a new perspective on Israel could be achieved. Over the next two months she traveled widely, from the ruins of Bybios in Lebanon to the Armenian Cathedral Church in Jerusalem to the refugee camps of Gaza. In every place she was offered the hand of friendship by people of diverse race and culture.
