Lion in a Tree

Our expectations of a pride of lions is that they would be lying down lazily on the scorched savanna ground and once in a while get up and kill something for lunch. That’s why we named them a “pride.” Turns out the pride is also very curious, at least in Israel, at the Ramat Gan […]

Here’s a man riding a donkey in Gush Etzion. The NY Times recently reported that “after decades of neglect and, some argue, misunderstanding, the fate of the donkey has come to resemble that of its human counterparts in hard-pressed European hinterlands: threatened by declining population and dependent for its survival on, yes, subsidies from the […]

The funniest thing this tearful morning was to hear Arik Einstein’s eulogy on the radio, first by President Shimon Peres and then by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, followed by singer’s last interview, where he’s screaming about the abuses of the country’s permanent establishment, how we have a beautiful country and sweet people and such a horrible […]

It’s probably the combination of the early 20th century buildings, the café tables reaching practically to the pavement and blocking the sidewalk, the train tracks and the Haredi guys walking in the middle of Yaffo Street. It’s Jerusalem in winter the way an artist like Pieter Bruegel would have painted it.

Om Beach, in the State of Karnataka in South West India, is about a two hour drive south of Goa.
