arrives in just two hours! And then, registration for winter trips doesn't begin for two whole months. There's plenty of work to do when I get back, but at least it won't be the insanity that began the last round (registration opened while some trips were still in Israel).
I pretty much found my way around today, including getting to and parking at the shuk. But the day is young and I have at least four stops to make before I get to the Caesar to meet the groups for Shabbat. The shuk on a Friday is crazy. I walked into Marzipan to buy rugelach with a list of the five different orders I needed. I walked out with 8 kilo (16 pounds) of treats. Some I have to drop off for the Ta Shma dinner, some are going to a bus oneg, some to a friend at the Novotel, some for our staff oneg (stay tuned for more nicknames) and some back to the US.
If you're reading this and don't work in my office (and don't get to the 6th floor by 9:15am!) - sorry - there won't be any left by the time I see you.
