so, less than 48 hours to go and i'll be on my way to new york. im mildly apprehensive. it's been a long while. did i ramble about this already? probably. i wonder if i'm different. i guess we'll find out. you know what i love about israel? it's just very friendly. really. or maybe it just makes me very friendly. to wit, i got on the sherut (that would be the pseudo-taxi that gets me home) and there's a guy sitting there with a whole bunch of balloons, so i wish him mazel tov. then on the walk down the block i see a dog run across the street, and a couple sitting there not paying attention, so i stop to ask if it's their dog and tell them to be careful cos it's running amok (well, not really, just wandering into the road, which is bad enough). all this at one in the morning. and everyone's nice about it all. can i adjust back into an atmosphere that's so formal? we'll see. at least i'm not british. or worse, japanese. israel is very make it or break it for the japanese. either they go crazy and have to go home, or they turn into giant slackers after about six months (i've seen this, it's quite entertaining).

i wonder who's reading this. i've been curious about this for a while now. i know there are some regulars. i wonder if there's anyone i dont know. probably. there have been a few stray comments from people i dont recognize, which is always nice.

who are you voyeur!?
