Travel blog day 1

Experiencing the usual travel problems... So no real blogging for a bit.

It's not like I can't find other things to do.

Meanwhile, the Chanukah party I went to last night was a blast, and I even met a frequent commenter, whom I didn't know is actually a "cousin in law."

One of the things I love about Israel is seeing how Judaism is integrated into everyday life. It may seem trivial, but to know that I can order kosher room service at my hotel, or to see the words "chag sameach" on a bottle of Coke, just makes Israel feel more like a home than anything in America in a very fundamental way.

It is a nice feeling.
