Today we picked up Safta and went to the hardware store (super grandson was replacing her leaking toilets) and the supermarket (which is always one of my favorite things to do in a foreign country) to get supplies to make the kubeh. Then we spent a couple of hours there and were joined by Shimon for our kubeh lunch. After that we picked up Hila, hung out at her apartment, saw her marionette collection and raided her music. Then we did a bit of site seeing, walking through the really lovely Mishkenot Sheanamin neighborhood, the first Jewish neighborhood settled outside of the walls of the old city (which had a great sunset view of the old city). After that we drove over to Hila’s parents house (where we had been the other night) and are hanging out here and I am taking advantage of their very nice wi-fi connection to post photos while Shachar continues to download music and to challenge Hila to games of backgammon. (Its now 7pm here)

Later tonight we’re going out with Hila and Amit for tapas (since we all had such a nice time doing that in DC when they were visiting in July and John took us out near his office.

Unfortunately the flash has given out on my camera (ack) so you’ll have to wait for any other inside or night photos until we get Shachar’s photos developed at home and then I’ll try to add some more in. Tomorrow we’re going to the Dead Sea with Shimon (to a hot spring area apparently) so hopefully there will be plenty of opportunities for outside shots).
