Settling [In]

Welcome to Israel!

This is the view from my window.

Not quite as scenic as some other views of the Valley of the Aboriginal Ghosts that I've had out of my windows in my times here. But I decided to make use of this new diggital camera to prove that I'm actually here and it's not just a story cooked up by me and Jameel or Trep to fool y'all.

Although, I guess this photo — notwithstanding the lack of a screen in the window, the Israeli flag on the building across the way, the tris on the closed side of the window, and the dud shemesh (dude!) true-solar water heaters on the roof — could be doctored.

But then it'd just be one of those things you have to accept on faith. ;-)

In the airport and on the plane I unexpectedly bumped into two different sets of people I know, which was fun. Surprisingly I was able to sleep during much of the plane ride (probably because I only slept an hour the night before the flight) and watched two movies — Ice Age 2 and V for Vendetta. The Ice Age movie was entertaining. V was veir— I mean it was weird. And I missed the last few minutes... and the English and French soundtracks kept on switching. Thank God for Hebrew subtitles!

Anyway, I'm here, where are you?

Oh, and this is my mad colorful bathtub:
(it's small too... crazy sit-down things)

I'm in Queens, wondering why you haven't come to visit yet.

V for Vendetta is awesome. You should watch it again, in English, and not miss the last scene.

Probably because he's annoyed by this boro's 300'000 Israelis. No, wait…
