‘My Adventures’ by Susan Stock
This morning we walked to school for our classes with students. We work with a few students during each class period, mostly conversation so that they get to practice speaking in English.
Lunch back at the hotel. This afternoon, our regular guide in CAARI, Neil Eisenstadt, joined the group. He is just back from serving in the IDF and was in Gaza. Needless to say, we were all happy to see him!
Our visit to the home of Hannah Senesh filed us with admiration for this your poet who lost her life during the World War II. It is a story of heroism and strength. I won’t go into it now, but you must read about her. Following our lecture and movie at her Kibbutz, Sdot Yam, near we had a sumptuous dinner while we watched the sun set over the sea in Caesarea.
We saw waves crashing against the shore, sending cascades of white water on to the beach. At the same time, we helped ourselves from dishes of delectable delights, including cauliflower, taboulie, and eggplant. The second course was sensational – Greek salad, green salad and foccacia filled our plates. Then came the main course, plenty of pasta, sweet potato ravioli – proclaimed to be the best dish of all. Then dessert – various cheesecakes and a chocolate tower cake with ice cream – of course, coffee and tea. Hungry??? We weren’t after all this! It is nice to get meal outside the hotel.
On the bus back to Tel Aviv, we listened to Neil, our guide; share with us a few of his recent military experiences.
Warm Regards to all,
