Sunday's here, so it's back to work today. Yesterday was our 3 week anniversary in Israel. So far, we love it here.
Quick weekend wrap up:
On Friday we went grocery shopping in a larger, better shop. The cashier was very nice to us and kept telling me how to bag our stuff, "More one! More one!" I figured out this meant to add one more plastic bag. Loved that gal.
Then off to see Wolverine. Good, but sometimes the characters spoke in Japanese, and there were no subtitles for those parts, so we had to use our inferential reasoning skills. Not too tough. We were planning to see Two Guns, which was advertised on their web page, but when we got there, the cashier said it wasn't playing because there was an event. What?
Ended the day with a beach trip. I wore my glasses into the sea, thinking I could keep my head above water, but an insidious massive killer wave knocked me over and snatched them right off my face. Luckily I have a back up pair. But I'm still pretty angry at the Mediterranean Sea. Damn you, M.S. I loved those glasses a lot.
Yesterday we drove south. Stopped at the Aqueduct Beach to take some pix. Herod built the aqueduct and the romans added to it back in the 200's. Still standing. So neat to see the beachers using the aqueduct arches as shelters to set up shop for their beaching. Then we drove to the ultra hip city of Tel Aviv. The art museum is phenomenal. Great Warhol exhibit right now.
Walked along the beach next. Everyone plays matcot here on the beach. It's paddle ball. When 10,000 people are playing it, there's quite a funny racket. Saw a hoopoe hopping around in the grass. Next time we go, we'll rent bikes on the beach and zip around.
Ended the day in Jaffa, just south of Tel Aviv. The town's been inhabited since 7,500 BCE. It was used as a port during the bronze age. C'mon. That's wild.
Back to work, mateys. For now, the fun is done.
