I've been traveling a lot over the past few weeks with a few Israelis I met when traveling with my parents. Seen so much stuff, so beautiful! It's been really relaxing and great. I don't even remember what if feels like to get up when it's still dark, having my alarm go off at 5:30AM, then spending hours just chopping and lifting and washing and covering trays with cling foil, and complaining about how tired I am all the time. I've also been spending time in Yodfat helping my friend Maria with her baby. It's all good, I can't complain.
I've had some interesting conversations with people about my lack of religion. Turns out that in Israel there's no such thing as not being religious. I had this man in the bus almost yell at me.. "You don't actually believe that we come from monkeys right? We don't look anything like monkeys! We don't even have tails!" How do you respond to that in a bus full of people attentively listening to your conversation?
Unfortunately it looks like I won't be able to get a volunteer position or a job for the next while, which means I'm just vacationing until my time here is up (my visa runs out in January). I guess that means I should be nicely recharged to start work again.. Ah work... Yeah... Well... :)
Hope everyone's doing well!
