Cool Evening Breeze and Dinner

Normally, this blog focuses on Scriptural/theological things, and this trip to Israel is certainly impacting that greatly (much to come as I process it all),  but the food and fun we’ve had at restaurants has deserved attention. If I can share a little of the experience, just maybe you’ll catch the dream and begin to make plans for a future visit to haeretz, the Land.

Dinner last night was a total blast. I am not sure if it is because we are tired and a bit chippy, or more likely if we, as a group, are really getting comfortable with each other, but we had so much fun laughing and goofing off around the table.

We were again in the outdoor cafe adjacent to the restaurant as we have been so tired at the end of hard travel days that nobody wants to walk anymore.  The evening was much cooler once the sun went down and the general party atmosphere on the open deck was invigorating for us.

The evening meal is an event in the local culture.  The city stops.  Suddenly all is quiet.  No beeping horns or zooming taxis. Peace.  And, diners are expected to sit for a while.

Salads are a mainstay and varied.  All we’ve had have been quite flavorful. Here is a smoked salmon Kelly had.  Heavy on cucumbers and tomatoes.

Connie’s Moroccan Couscous was excellent!!  Neither she nor Kelly could finish theirs, so I had helping along with my Thai salad.
