I'm in Israel for a couple of weeks. I've been prevented from posting due to some technical glitches which now, thankfully, seem to have been resolved.
A lot of my time here will be spent getting my bearings and catching up with old friends; I haven't been to Israel since 1993, and I don't plan to wait another 18 years before my next visit.
Tel Aviv is actually not that big. And it's flat. So if you are able-bodied and not in a hurry, you can get almost anywhere you need to go on foot. Yesterday I made a trip to Jerusalem, and I got from my hotel to the southern Tachana Merkazit (central bus station) on foot in 45 minutes.
Probably most of my posting in the next week will not be directly Israel-related, but some of it surely will. And I've got pictures. I'll get 'em up online in a bit.
I'm in northeastern Connecticut, staying with some relatives here for the duration of my two-week visit. We had Thanksgiving dinner and I'm enjoying a lot of downtime. Last night I made it to my high school reunion - the first one I've attended - and it was a blast. I haven't lived on the East Coast since I left home, and I'd lost touch with almost everyone back here, with the exception of one good friend who reads this blog and writes regularly.
