Israel at last!

04 Jul

I made it!

So, took forever to get through passport control, think I Picked the wrong queue, or the man in the booth was being very thorough! Anyway – got myself an Israeli sim card in Steimatzky and a taxi to the hotel.

Last night se all met up for an Indian in the hotel restaurant. Chicken Tikka Masala – yum. Then a few of us walked for what seemed like forever to Ben Yehuda for a beer.

So that was yesterday – well today we were out for 8:30, and walked to the Ministry buildings to have a few(!) meetings with people. As always, some speakers were better than others, I can recommend the incoming Israeli Ambassador to the UK (if not his choice of football team – Manchester City for those who care).

Lunch – well after a typically huge Israeli breakfast, then came – wait for it – the chicken schintzel! It wasn’t alone though, there were salads, and hummous too. And meatballs, and more chicken! So not going to lose any weight with this!

Right – have to go as we are going out soon for dinner.

    I’m very glad the food is good. You can sleep through the boring speakers if you’ve had a nice big breakfast/lunch!!

      I had cheesecake and a chocolate croissant with breakfast. They give the hotel in London a run for its money!
