Hi there! And welcome to These Elysian Fields.

My friends call me Razan, and my husband, the Phactivist.* You can call us the same if you’d like.

We moved to the Middle East not too long ago to join others in relief, development, and peace building work. We leave it to our colleagues to publish the work-related stuff, and to ourselves to publish snippets of the rest.

If you’d like to journey along with us via our pictures and stories, I hope you’ll consider following us.

Thanks for stopping by!



*Phactivist: n.

  1. One who is simultaneously a philosopher and an activist.
  2. One who is interested in the facts.
