Feral kitties at the Yeshiva - arenít they cute!

My luxurious room in Jerusalem! Actually it, and the rent I am paying, have gotten rave reviews from friends who have been by and itís better than either dorm at JTS. Itís all mine, I have my own bathroom and thereís even a hot plate and kettle. Now if I only could meet my landlord and actually pay my rent!! Bonus feature - wireless internet!

Israeli signs are in 3 languages. I live in HaMoshava HaGermanit.


A view of the Montefiore Windmill on my walk home.

One of many such posters I pass daily. Sign says ďKing MessiahĒ. And I thought we were still waiting!
