We got back this morning and have been reading the blog -- it seemed like we hadn't been here for ages and had seen and done so much but then we walked into the house and it seemed like we had just left. I don't know if I am happy to be home but I don't feel unhappy -- life goes on -- we had a break from routine and now we have to go back to work and other things like cleaning the house and doing tons and tons of washing because all our belongings are infused with the smell of our not entirely successful fire in Sapa -- and that includes everything we bought and also gifts (and probably includes us as well -- but with all the spicy food, fish sauce and garlic ... read more

Last weekend, our program took us on a trip to the south. I love the Negev. I think the desert is absolutely breathtaking, and even after a weekend of the heat and mountains of sand and craters of sand, it was still amazing to look at by the end of the weekend. We left early Friday morning and drove down to the south, stopping for breakfast along the way. We got to our first hike, a national park that started in this valley that was created by erosion. The trail led us up a whole bunch of stairs and ladders and we ended at the top. I did this same hike on Birthright last summer, and it was significantly easier this time, mainly because I knew exactly what to expect. The view was just s amazing ... read more

Classes started last week. I'm taking Hebrew plus four other classes: Israeli Drama, the History of the Arab-Israeli Conflict, After Auschwitz: Representations of the Holocaust in Contemporary Culture, and Jewish Education. The Israeli Drama class is really fun, I miss all the drama I used to do in high school. Last night we had to read a play and analyze one character in it, and then today in class we read parts of it, playing the character we had analyzed. It was really nice to read a play aloud again. The class about the Arab-Israeli conflict is good; it's very lecture-based and the professor is kind of dry, but the material is interesting. The Holocaust class is really interesting; it's about analyzing literature and films and artwork about the Holocaust, so it's not just an English ... read more

Istanbul is absolutely gorgeous. The whole city is dotted with beautiful mosques and the whole city seems to pulse to the call to prayer five times a day. From the plane, the minarets spiral upwards, away from the city. The first full day we were there, Hilary, Jodi, Nataly, Emily, and I wandered a little bit with the help (kind of) of my new map before we finally asked directions to Sultanehmet Square. We somehow managed to take the tramvay to Sultanehmet and we walked to the Blue Mosque but got there just as they were closing to visitors for prayer. Haghia Sophia is just across from the Blue Mosque, so we went there first. Haghia Sophia was first a church, built by Justinian in the 6th century, and it was later turned into a mosque. ... read more
