Wow ! A week of my two week holiday in Israel has zipped by ! What fun ! It was time to meet Heila yesterday in Tel Aviv
Because my hotel, 7 Arches on the Mount of Olives, is in a Palestinian area of Jerusalem it took a lot of planning to arrange the best method of transport for me to meet Heila in Tel Aviv, Israel. Heila ( a multi-linguist) and Elias, the hotel receptionist, timed our meeting in Tel Aviv to perfection.
Yay ! It was fantastic to meet a fellow blogger who has been in touch with me for a very long time. A big hug ! A real one ! We had a lovely day together and got on so well.
On crossing a footbridge to the tour bus we came across padlocks on the fence, hundreds of them with names of couples written on the padlocks. Lovers locked together !
Look at the padlocks on the fence Ralph !!!
Heila and I toured Tel Aviv and Jaffa on a tour bus and I chatted too much during the commentary !!
And we walked and walked and talked and talked.
Eventually arriving at a beautiful restaurant. 2 hours sped by as we had a HUGE Italian lunch together under the trees in Tel Aviv.
Heila had some great news during our meal.
It’s always sad to say goodbye after a day out as friends. BUT we are going to meet again on Friday ! Yay !
Many of you know I have problems with my hands. So feeding myself can be difficult when cutting is involved. Amazingly, this group has taken me under their wing, serving my plate, carrying coffee for me etc. Wonderful people !
