Today for lunch I went to the deli down the street and bought delicious Montreal smoked meat and really tasty old cheddar. Then I bought an apple for desert from the fruit market on the corner. I came home and made a really yummy sammich.

I love living where Things are.

Even better is the fact that I've been using the wireless internet connection of someone in my building since I moved in and the signal is always full strength!

Anyway. Here are more pictures from Israel:

I call this one, "Bird's eye view of the Dead Sea."

An aerial-ish shot of Castle Nimrod.

The Baha'ai Gardens in Haifa.

An Ibex in Ein Gedi.

Clayton and I are all set up in our apartment. Let me know if you want our address or phone number. You can come and visit. It's cozy here. We're right on the corner of Bloor Street, but it's not as noisy as one would imagine. I swear, I think that I can hear the pleasant suburban sound of a lawnmower right now. Of course, I can also hear the rumbling of the subway underneith me. We live 2 blocks away from the Dufferin subway station!

I hope that everyone has recieved their postcards! Some might take a little while longer because I sent them on the second to last day that I was there.

Israel was so amazing that I can't even begin to put it into words. I want to cling to the Middle Eastern lifestyle and live it as truely as possible here in Canada. I want to eat my breakfast on my patio. I want to barter in the market. I want to buy all of my food fresh, not frozen, and I want to buy it from the man who farmed it. I want to smile at my neighbours rather than scowl at them. I want my legs to ache from walking everywhere, all the time. I want to wake up with the sun and go to sleep five hours after it sets. I want to be able to wear skirts and sandals every day of the year. I want to live on rooftops and sidewalks.

I have so many pictures that I can't even begin to think of uploading them all for you guys to see them. I filled my 1GB memory card every day that I was there, sometimes twice. That's over 12GB of photos, guys! Think about it.

Eternal sunshine and endless photo oportunities. Really: if I moved to Israel, would you blame me?
