Here we are in Israel at last. And here is a short update so far of life and experiences in Israel.
Flying was long and definitely something I don't want to do very often.
Using a taxi in Israel is extremely expensive (or maybe I am unexperienced in the cost of public transportation), but at least I can say I used one now (and hope to not have to use one again).
When we think it is really hot everyone else around us shakes their head and confirms this is nothing compared to how hot it can get.
Both of our phones are really old and therefore, won't take a SIM card in Israel.
Communication without phones can be incredibly frustrating when you are not on wifi.
Without your own car, one has to walk a LOT.
The sun is brutal for the fair skinned. Ok, I already knew this but....
Saying "thank you" in Hebrew is about the only thing I can say so far, but hey its a start.
I am thankful for a husband who does know some Hebrew so we can manage to get around. But also thankful that most people at least speak a little English.
I thought Minnesotans were bad at honking their horns, but I think I have been proved wrong. Israel is way worse.
Although things are fairly modernized in most places in Israel it is still in some ways very different then the U.S.A.
I think the markets can be a lot of fun, but it will take me a little while to figure out the money here so I can know if I am getting a good deal or not.
