The trip is definitely starting to wind down and our pace has slowed considerably. Today we drove up to Tel Aviv and met with Shachar’s uncle Yuval who runs a software company that makes Invoice By Click, a great tool for small businesses. After chatting about the software in his office, we went out to lunch at a fish restaurant that they apparently always traditionally go to. Then Shachar and I walked around the port area (which has been turned into stores and restaurants) and drove around some of the main areas of the city before heading back down to Jerusalem We stopped in at his great-uncles’ nut and dried fruit factory — his two great uncles were there and they were just wonderful to meet (hopefully the photos will come out of them, unfortunately I still don’t have a flash). These are two of the brothers of his grandmother (Safta), a third lives in Vancouver and we hope to visit him there sometime soon now that we can travel internationally again (assuming our reentry on Saturday goes smoothly :)) Now we’re at Shachar’s Mom’s and also hope to see Sharon and Ran and possibly Hila and Amit tonight, as well as Rikki (who we keep missing the past few days — probably because we’ve displaced her from her bedroom at home so she’s been elsewhere).

Update: in the end we ended up going to a great French restaurant with Rikki and Sharon.
