I arrived Tuesday, went up North Wednesday, and now I'm back in J-lem. For such a small country though, it's pretty big. Oh, and between the Kfar Giladi and J-lem, we took a very slight detour for lunch on the beach. It was 70 degrees, waves crashing, and it didn't matter what we were eating, it was a good afternoon. And it was not as far out of the way as you might think.
We learned a great new icebreaker from one of our staff. Going around the circle, everyone has to answer - do you crumple your toilet paper or fold it? We did find a few "folders". [Another great one - tell us about one of your scars. And the last - what is the food that you hate that you wished that you liked.] I'm pleading the fifth on all of them (just to be on the safe side).
We got the internet working here, which is key to allowing me to work while I'm here. The volume of emails is staggering, and this is during a time when people theoretically know I'm out of the office. The task tonight is going to be trying to see if I can watch lost from the abc.com website.
Tomorrow I've got two Shehechiyanu ceremonies. Sounds like a contradiction, but it's not. In J-lem, anything is possible :)
