Friday/Shabbat – Day 17/18

Posted on 6th August 2012

This morning I woke up to one of the most exciting emails I have ever received. Ask me about it.

From there it was a good few hours back to Jerusalem!

On arriving I decided to take a walk and ended up getting lost in Jerusalem (a rare occurrence) for a few hours and thus had a good three hour walk in the heat. I bought some rogelach (an Israeli pasty) and more felafel!

Dinner was a quiet affair at my cousins, with Daniella, back from the army for her first weekend at home. Surprisingly she seemed to find basic training a most enjoyable period and was treating it much like summer camp, earning the name ‘Savta’ (Grandmother) for handing out sweets to the other trainees.

Shabbat was peaceful, sleeping and visting family and friends. However, Saturday night was out on the town with Daniella! We visited a few of the less reputable establishments in Jerusalem and I met a few drunken friends of hers who seemed not to be able to stop yammering. Despite this, I enjoyed myself until I collapsed into bed at 3AM.

    I’m curious about the email. I haven’t read further, so I apologise if you have explained it already in a later post and have to reiterate here. Or by email, if you’d feel more comfortable.

      The email was a notification that I had been accepted as a potential candidate for an interview with a big technology company. Email me at if you want the details đŸ™‚
      If I don’t get the internship in the end I’ll probably write a full post about my experiences.
