Hey y'all! Here I am in Tel Aviv, just done some laundry. What a relief to be back here in Israel. I've been here since Sunday morning at 3am, quite an interesting time in Istanbul, I must say, but glad to have left.
Well, met a few friends, nice folks here. It's great to just chat to people everywhere, find out their story: why people move here, how they feel about living here, etc. I have a lot to learn and many opinions and stories to hear. Yesterday I beach bummed it, quite a nice time. Then at night I went to Karen's house! I have been emailing back and forth with Karen for the past 2 and a half years because I thought we were related as she emailed me by accident thinking I was her cousin's son. Her cousin is married to someone who shares my apellido, perhaps I am related to them. Either way, it was very nice of her to have me, and I ate dinner with her and her sons, met her husband later. It was such a nice time, and I got to see how they live. Cozy little apartment, rooftop balcony was a very nice touch where they have many asados and a ping pong table. Oh yeah, for those of you who don't know, Karen is Chilean. One of her sons, Yaniv, spoke English very well (none of them speak Spanish), so we chatted quite a bit. He's pretty cool, and so were the other two sons.
Well, I am off to Jerusalem today!! I'm meeting up with Dina and her friends, then I am going to stay somewhere, wherever that is. If I am lucky, Barak will take off work and I can stay with him!! I miss my friends and I cannot wait to see them, really.
Home in 5 days, such a strange concept. AHH.
Oh yeah, by the way, WHY IS MY JOURNAL NOW REFUSING MY PEN? THE HUMIDITY WILL NOT LET ME WRITE AND LORD KNOWS I HAVE THINGS TO WRITE!!
