28 February 2012 (Before the storm)

February 28, 2012

Some photos from our walk today as the clouds were already forming for the upcoming storm.
今夜は大雨の予報。既にもくもくと大きくなりつつある雨雲を目前に歩いた散歩から数枚。

I had such a weird hangover today like never before. I felt a light dizziness throughout the day and it exhausted me.

I knew this may happen as I sipped red wine last night after nearly two and a half days of not really eating or drinking anything (other than yogurt, fruit, and water). My body had involuntarily gone through a bit of a cleanse, and I knew the wine would probably shock my system.

The hangover I had today made me vision the wine soaking through every cell in my body like poison. The cells being over receptive because they’ve just been purified. I usually don’t get hung over from a few glasses of wine.

I knew I would eventually go back to my old eating and drinking habits… but after going through so much physical pain to wash out my system, it was amazing how quickly I could start consuming the bad stuff again. (Because it tastes so good, I guess. And it went so well with Yuval’s tapas dinner!)

今日は今まで体験したことのないような二日酔い。
一日中軽いめまいのような、微妙な車酔いのような、
なんとも言えない感覚で、かなりこたえました。

昨日赤ワインを口にした瞬間、このようなことになるかもしれないことは予想してたんです。
約二日間半ヨーグルトと果物と水以外何も食べなかったので、
私の体はちょっとしたデトックスを経験しました。
いきなり赤ワインなんか入ってきたら、体はびっくりしちゃいますよね。

今日の二日酔いは、昨日飲んだ赤ワインが私の体中の細胞全てに
毒のようにしみ込んだイメージを想像させられるようなものでした。
浄化された私の細胞は吸収力が普段の数倍。
私は普段ワインを何杯か飲んだだけでは二日酔いにならないんです。

いずれまたいつも通りの食生活に戻ることはわかっていたけど、
デトックスされるためにあれだけ肉体的に辛い思いをしたのに、
こんなに簡単に悪いものを飲んだり食べたりするのを復活した自分に
ちょっとびっくりというかげんなり(?!)。
(まあ、おいしいからですよね。昨日のユバルが作ったタパスともすごい合ったし。って言い訳か!)

Much love,
Kaori

    Great blog. I suppose you’re going through a cultural shock, like me. We just traveled to Masada this past weekend. What a place.

      Thank you! Yes, I totally hear you on the cultural shock. It took me about a year before things started to actually sink in and I could observe things. Before that I was in true “shock” mode! I can only imagine what you must be going through. Masada is one of the top destinations I want to go in Israel! Looking forward to seeing pics on your blog🙂
