It's all very good learning to say sentences in Hebrew, but it doesn't really help much with the understanding when others speak their sentences. Case in point. Yesterday when we went to Ein Afek, the guard at the gate spoke to us and we could not understand him. I offered my standard apology about only speaking english. So the guy spoke in english, but I still couldn't understand and let me tell you...that is super embarrassing. Finally, the third time he spoke, he held his hand on his gun and said slowly, "Do you have a weapon?" I burst out laughing, "No! Oh gosh no! We have no weapons. Weapons? That's so funny." He didn't find my hilarity amusing and gestured us to move on into the park.
On another fascinating topic, I feel like I'm in a little bit of a roll with the article writing. Feeling cheerful about this.
