We managed to arrive as it was all finishing to get sent off for a dinner placement It was to be at Hippy Joes and it as the most incredibly good food I've had in a long time. the first round of different salad things was a meal in itself, but then the carnivores amongst us were then presented with fish followed by chicken, followed by 3 different deserts, and some 'ecological' wine to help it all go down.
The next day there were 2 meals that didt quite match up - you can't cook on the Sabbath. Sat next to me for lunch was a religious guy with a fiery look in his eyes. We got into a conversation abut cucumbers (which are much bigger in the UK than they are in Israel) and I realised that I had not talked about anything fun in a week. Every conversation with every person in the yeshiva seems to end up getting deep. - Partly the place and partly because it attracts deep people. Some really interesting typoes. There is a British guy with his own unique theories about everything from homeopathy to how Israel should become a jewish state; then in my dormitory there is a guy who walks around as if he is totally enlightened ..he explained to me the other day how water has consciouness; the guy with dreadlocks, the list goes on.
By the third meal I was getting vey full and bloated. It took 2 days and a trip to the gym to feel normal. and to think they do this every week.
