I cannot get the internet to work in the apartment, and all of the cafes are shutting down in preparation for Shabbat (it is now 3 PM and Shabbat starts in about an hour). In fact, the table and chair I was just sitting at was pulled out from under me, and I am crouching against a wall to type this message while I still have the Wifi! Dinner is already in the oven, soup is hot on the stove, since Chaim and I prepare all of our Shabbat food before Shabbat (he is strictly observant in that way — I, not so much).
We walked from our neighborhood (the Greek Colony) to Mahane Yehuda, the marvelous market in central Jerusalem for our fruit and vegetables today– a very, very crowded and busy place on a Friday, but always colorful and exciting!
We are looking forward to hosting Bili, my Israeli pen pal since I was 10 years old, for Shabbat dinner tonight. Tomorrow we go to my friend Susan’s for Shabbat lunch.
More tomorrow night. May your Shabbat be sweet and restful.
Thank you Pam! What a wonderful way to share your trip! Rest well & enjoy!
Shabbat Shalom guys! Thinking of you both every day; seeing through your eyes! Am loving your blog! Joey sends her love, as do I! Have Cori and 2w grandchildren down for a week! DMR/JMR
