Good morning, my loyal readers…how have you been? I’m great. It’s been a slow month of posting and I’m about to head to summer camp for a couple of months. Much, much more to say about that in the coming days but for now, just a couple of quick pics and comments to remove some guilt from my non-posting self.
Just a beautiful picture from last month before Yom Ha’atzmaut. This is one of the Azrieli skyscrapers in Tel Aviv covered in…are they still called Christmas lights in this country??? The picture doesn’t do it justice. For the Israelis in the Diaspora, this is the soon-to-be-completed third tower which they resumed work on this past year…read all about it in the link.
Sadly, there’s no frame of reference to see how small this is. This is a palm-sized bottle of sunscreen I bought at AM/PM a couple of weeks ago on Shabbat. If you can’t read it, it costs 57 shekels. AM/PM is a store open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week which you should only shop in under one of the following two conditions:
1) Everything else is closed, or
2) You are being held at gunpoint.
ARE THE OWNERS OF THIS STORE AWARE OF WHAT THINGS COST IN OTHER PLACES??? WHAT KIND OF ECONOMIC RULES ARE DICTATING THEIR PRICING STRUCTURE???
Does he really want to hear the answer? The truth hurts, buddy.
