ARRIVED SAFELY!

Here I am! (can you see the jetlag in my eyes?)

The flight was sleepless, but my neighbor was a nice Israeli man who said that my Hebrew is fantastic (but that I should say anatzel et hahisdamnut — "take advantage of this opportunity" — instead of ecach et hahisdamnut — "take this opportunity," as in English.)

Anyway — we just had dinner at my grandmother's house, with almost everyone. Kisses, rejoicing, hora NTBG-im,* hora jetlagim, etc.


*see WWZ's explanation & commentary on "NTBG" as an abbreviation for Ben Gurion Airport, here.

Tomorrow:
The Israel Museum
The Kotel
The Old City
Mt. Scopus
Talpiot
Armon haNatziv in Ramat Rachel
Jerusalem downtown
for dinner, Steikiat Chatzot (Midnight Steakhouse?) for me'orav (cat meat??)

MUCH MORE SOON!

  1. Thank goodness you're safe! I know you said you'll be busy for a while, but just go ahead and call me whenever you have some time. :)

    Also, I guess you're about to find out, but I hear that most of the Israel Museum is closed right now.
