Step-by-Step: Making Aliyah to Israel

Documenting the very personal process of making Aliyah (immigration to Israel) by one very atypical Israeli-American girl. Aliyah on 17, August, 2005. Roadmap: What do you mean there's no roadmap?! Hang on, we're in for a bumpy ride! Ole!

The server for my new site seems to be down. How unfair is this?! Not only are all the TV and the radio stations about to become nonexistant for 24 hours but I also can't blog! It seems to me that this is some bizarre conspiracy designed to make me actually write that article.

There is a holiday spirit in the air. I ran out to get some bottled water and cigarrettes (of course) this morning and really should have remembered that I should have remembered to do that yesterday instead. People are stocking up on food in the grocery like the stores will be closed for 2 weeks rather than 24 hours. I had to wait nearly a half-hour in the line. Some shops and cafes have already closed and those cafes and restaurants that are still open are filled to brim with people who are off work and doing a bit of relaxing before the big shut-down. Cars are getting fewer on the road but the buses are still running for a bit longer--another hour I believe. Everyone is smiling and in a good mood.

Guess I'll update here and copy over to the new blog when it comes back online (sniff sniff. I feel bereft!)
