(December 31, 2019) So much of the day was spent learning about culture and human rights issue, tonight is New Year’s Eve. I’ve been invited to a celebration but am going to give it a pass as I need to be up and about early on New Year’s Day. Please note that we are 10 hours ahead of those in the Pacific Time zone.

Here are some glimpses into what we’ve been experiencing.

Star of David?

 

Careful, your Baba is watching

 

Some signs of the times

 

An eerie sculpture from Gaza

 

Still hosts visitors at the Walled Off Hotel

 

Inside the hotel: an exhibit of Occupation Living in the Shadow

 

Banksy playing cupid with cameras

 

and skip rope with soldiers

 

A guard tower fades into the background for most local residents

 

Probably not Dickensian but very reminiscent

 

Stoles

 

Santa has room at this inn
I’ve often wondered about the significance of this Isaiah quote in the present day. 

 

 

 People look up! Oranges and Lemons…

 

Clothing seems a bit less

 

Looks like fuel is 6.14NIS/ltr – $2.31 CAD

 

Eclectic collection of wares
