Where I stayed
Hagit's House

We left Yad Natan around 10 and drove to Hagit's house.  The drive should have taken an hour but for some reason I kept missing the turn off with the GPS, but we stopped someone and asked for directions and we were finally on our way.  Now for some reason, the name of the street starts with avenue, boulevard or street and if you dont speak or read the language major problems can arise.  Drop that first word put into the GPS and bom shankar, you are on your way.  It took us over three hours but we finally arrived. 

Hagit then took us Ofra's.  We met with Dganit and we went to this really great restaurant near Ofra's place.  Three sets of sisters.  Very cute.  Now it appears to me, that all these restaurants serve tapas style salads before the meal.  They are amazing.  It's like shabbot lunch at every meal.  You know all those salads that I love.  It would be easy to be a vegetarian in this country.  Then the waiter arrives and expects you to order something.  Who can eat after that?  Doggie bag it.  The kids had a great snack.  We retreated to Ofra's and met Rafi who just finished work.

Cousin Lilly (zaida's first cousin) invited us for supper at her house.  We were so full from before but wanted to meet Lilly and her kids.  They lived in Ranana'a.  So Hagit was nice enough to join us and we met Mati there.  I finally had my mother's and father's family at the table for the first time in my life (not counting Uncle Louis (Moshe)).

We all enjoyed each other and that's why we came to Israel.  They were so gracious and made us feel so welcome.  All of us were exhausted.  Returned to Hagit's and met her husband Alon and her son Tal.  The other kids were out and about. 

Finally I asleep to awaken realizing I finally slept a complete night.  So much for jetlag. It will only get me on the way back.
