Three Different Spellings by Leah Weinkselbaum

(Arlene Sacks and Leah Weinkselbaum from NY)

The Hotel Vista is a “small” hotel, in Eilat, with excellent service! The daily maid service is right up my alley. The dining room staff jumped to all our requests. The reception desk was extremely helpful.
The street signs in Israel have many different spellings – nothing is the same! When we arrived at the hotel we got our room key in an envelope marked – “Welcome CARRI!” There was an electric wall sign when you get off the elevator in the lobby. It says “Welcome CARRY”! By the fourth day, the sign was changed to “Welcome CAARI” group – the correct spelling for Canadian American Active Retirees in Israel.
We know we are CAARI. Susan is our leader on whom we can rely – that is our CAARI song. Yes – we even have a song!

Wishing everyone warm regards from Israel – it is warming up!
