Hi hi hi!
Been a VERY busy few days. Apparently I now have an addiction to Falafel... but whatevs! It's good stuff I tell you! I bought some "Doritos" ( I can't read Hebrew so I assume) that had pictures of jalapenos on them, I was so excited thinking they would be lovely and hot, but they aren't, how disappointment!
So, On Monday we went on an excursion to Tel Aviv to go to two museums, one was very long and dreary, it was called the Diaspora Museum, and it took the people at the cafe 45 minutes to make one half of a sandwich for me! The second was called the Palmach Museum and it was beyond excellent! It reminded me slightly of that lights and sound show at Centrepoint Tower... well maybe not, but kind of close. On the way home we stopped off at the invisible flea markets at Old Jaffa. The beach was so beautiful though, it really made me miss home... all those lovely hot days I am missing :(
Tuesday was jam packed full of lectures on Nazi Ideology and the Ghettos. At night we went to the Israel Museum to see the Dead Sea Scrolls. The most impressive part would have been the section of the Isaiah Scrolls. Today we are meeting 4 Holocaust survivors, one who survived Auschwitz too!
Tomorrow we see Schindler's grave and meet two Schindler Jews which is sooooo exciting!
Ephraim asked Michelle and I to have a deep and meaningful with anyone who is interested about teaching Muslim students about the Holocaust.. apparently it's a very interesting/strange/abnormal/exciting thing to do... I dunno, they are just kids really! We love them no matter what/who/where they are.
So excuse the minimal effort and time put into this blog, I only have a short lunch (yes half of it is devoted to the D&M). Love you lots, xoxoxo LEXI
