Chocolatespoon: Emily’s Musings

A busy day in Jerusalem

Posted on: December 30, 2006

I’m hoping to get some photos up tomorrow, but before I forget what we did today, here’s the brief rundown:

Woke up and had fresh pitas and smoked tuna that we had bought at the market yesterday and then Shachar, Shula and I went to the Israel Museum where we saw the Model of Jerusalem in the Late Second Temple Period, a great exhibit on bread and the Shrine of the Book which houses the Dead Sea Scrolls! We’re going to try to go back to see more of the exhibits another day. Then we went to see the big monster sculpture that we had seen in the movie months ago (and it was just as cool as I had hoped). Then we had a wonderful lunch at a restaurant whose name translates to People (ah-na-sheem) in Ein-Karem and then stopped by to see an old high school teacher of Shachar’s and his family.

After that we went to check out the famous bowling alley, which was amazing (and I even bowled a pretty decent first game, only losing by 2 points to Shimon, but fell apart in our second match), then met up with a big gang of family members for dessert (and a birthday celebration), and then went out to the Link Cafe with Shachar’s wonderful cousins who we had seen in DC a couple of months ago, her brother Ohad, and Sharon and Ran.

So now its after midnight on a very fun day, and I’ll wrap up for now and fill in more details when I can add photos.
