I’ve decided to write again sooner than I thought. Believe it or not, here in Israel we are out of school for Pesach vacation as of today!!!
Here in Israel there is only one seder- that a good thing and a bad thing. It’s good because we get to rest on the next day and not have a second late night, but it’s bad because…I miss the second seder!!!
In Israel, girls and boys from the age of 9 can cross the street by themselves! It took a while to get used to the freedom here- I’m not used to being able to go to the makolet, (small grocery store) by myself, or to meet my friends in a different neighborhood.
The scenes here in Karmiel are gorgeous!! Since Karmiel is in the valley, it is so pretty. We sometimes get unexpected rain showers, but when we do, it’s a brachia (blessing).
Karmiel is about a two and a half hour drive to Yerushalayim. Well, at least it’s not a whole plane ride!!! Here’s a picture of me at the kosel in the womens’ section
