from Haifa to Tel Aviv with love

Haifa, Israel
I just don't know where to start not having blogged since 17 April. It wasn't because I didn't want to or had nothing to say. My computer just stopped working while I was living in Haifa and although it was brand new and under warranty I wasn't able to get it fixed. It's a long and ugly story which I won't bore you with. Suffice it to say that I bought a Lenovo Lemon and they told me not to worry, that it would be fixed at no charge. After almost two months of doing without it I stormed into the repair shop and took possession of it. I finally bought another new computer and so far so good (it's been one day). So here I am reporting from Israel again.

I have since moved to Tel Aviv. I need a bit of time to reorganize and transfer my hand written notes and photos into some cohesive information. Everything in Israel happens so fast and time feels like another dimension; one that I have not experienced before. Living in Israel is different than being a tourist here. I have had my ups and downs, especially living in the terrain of Haifa. No one told me how hard it is to walk up the hills and steps.

I tried to keep in touch on twitter and facebook during this time and wish to thank all of my online friends for hanging in there with me! A lot of people have reached out to help and befriend me both in Haifa and now in Tel Aviv. Thanks to all, and especially my family who have been cheering me on long distance!
