Nothing better with weather like this than a ride, to the beach,
(Click to enlarge)
This week I took another ride down to the Rishon Le-Zion beach, because the drive there is so enjoyable. (Plus any ride that ends at the Mediterranean Sea couldn’t disappoint.) This time there were people sitting at the various cafes, enjoying the sunshine. Spring is indeed upon us and those empty beaches (to enjoy all to yourself) are a distant memory. I was pretty proud of my little vespa sand sketch (above). You’ve got to love a beach with that many shells! I can’t get over the beauty of the place. If you want more info about this beach, read my earlier article about it here.
I am a walking commercial for Vespa, but I don’t mind at all.
I know that my point is to avoid politics in this blog, but sometimes you see something and can’t refuse.
This is the ‘Israel loves Iran” and “Iran loves Israel” Facebook movement that started this past weekend when Ronny Edry and his wife Michal Tamir, together with “Pushpin Mehina”, make images and uploaded them to the deal ‘ol facebook. It has now been seen and reported by various news sources around the world and people (for every corner of the world) have sent in their photo and love. I was hesitant to add this photo, because I don’t want to add this dimension to the blog, but this whole happening is so moving and profound. Thus, here it is.
Social Media is the bestest, sometimes: People don’t support the wars their governments insist upon:
If you add one to the facebook page and want to post yours here (in the comments or send it via e-mail), please do! That would be awesome.
Always, with peace.
We were taking a walk around the city yesterday and came upon this ‘ol beauty just off the street (!!!). I just wanted to tease you with it here, as I’ll include more photos and details of the pretty little forgotten machine later next week. I plan on taking a trip with the ‘pa to the kibbutz this weekend and hopefully getting some filming done. Maybe the quality will be better this time, so I can show you some footage from the Judean Hill area. I’ll also try to get a post ready for another vespa adventures: Abu Gosh- the Best Hummas in Israel. Till then, everyone have a very lovely end of the week and weekend. Now, out to enjoy the nicest day of Spring here yet: yalla, bye!
Oh, P.S. Here is a fun little news segment about people buying scooters in the states as gas prices soar nearer to summer, http://wtvr.com/2012/03/20/get-100-miles-to-the-gallon-and-park-just-about-anywhere/. And here is a poor news reporter not having the best of luck live, trying to ride a scooter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBXgZ9HWF5E.
