The "Chag Sameach" Coke

That's what I'm talking about.

Touring Israel is wonderful, of course, but I get just as much pleasure - and sometimes more - out of just soaking up the ambiance of being in a Jewish state. Listening to Hebrew and poorly attempting to speak it, being able to walk around with a yarmulka without a second thought of how people are perceiving me, noticing a Biblical reference on a truck, ordering a delightfully messy shwarma at a random kosher joint - this is what I love about Israel.
