Manar (26), from the Christian minority, studied business administration and now works in the boutique she owns with her sister. Located on the commercial area of Ramallah it sells women's wear. She enjoys her comfortable economic status, but hopes to leave Palestine for the US or Chile, where she has family. ''life here is so difficult, people always talk and talk. You can't do anything because everyone is going to know what you did or who you were with. My family, specially my mom and grand mom, are urging me to marry, but I really don't care about that.'' Asked about the political situation in Palestine, she replied ''I don't care about politics, I only care about working and partying.''
