So it really has been a long time since I posted here. But as I’m back in Israel, I thought it was a good time to update.
This time I’m here for two reasons.
One – my brother made Aliyah late last year, I’ve come out to see him and his very nice new flat in Rishon Le Zion. It seems he’s settling in nicely, just needs a good job to keep him in the style we’d all like to become accustomed to! His Ivrit will take time, but it seems to be coming along nicely, and he was very appreciative of the care package brought from home, even if I had brought the wrong type of tea bags! In my defence, I did buy the brand on special offer in the supermarket!
Two – my cousin gets married on Thursday (only he would set a date that clashes with the England vs Italy match in the Euros). There are lots of family and friends here to help celebrate the occasion.
So far, well a few days in Tel Aviv being tourists, doing the Carmel Market and Nachalat Binyamin with some shopping thrown in, and pool time as well. We’ve moved over to Jerusalem now, and plan to do more tourist type things, like the Tunnel Tour at the Wall!
More updates to come soon!
