Lake Kinneret in the distance (taken last September), Canon EOS Kiss Digital X

Contrary to the photo taken above last September, I arrived in Israel in the dark.

This has actually been a trend for the last few foreign countries I have traveled to.
Thailand, India, and Sengal’s first impressions on me were engraved in the dark, surreal and a bit blurry, some amusing, some exhilarating, and some outright frightening.

A big wide smile greeted me on this second entrance to Israel and my spirits soared immediately. We made two stops on the way, first at a bourekas stand run by a beautiful blond Russian woman. She took one straight from the oven and graciously cut it in to pieces and filled the rest of the plate with olives, pickles, and a hard boiled egg. Next we stopped at a Arab bakery and picked up a couple baklavas and cookies for the next few days. The guys there were friendly and asked Yuval where I was from. Upon hearing I was from Japan, one of the guys said he’s always wanted to go but has only made it to China.

I have a feeling these first impressions will stay with me for a long time, even if details eventually become a bit obscure.

Much Love,
