My flight from Mumbai landed in Israel at 3:20 AM, and now at 5:10 I'm in bed with Zahava curled up next to me, and the familiar sounds and smells of my sleeping home... family... life... all around me.

'A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it'

       George Augustus Moore (1852 – 1933) "The Brook Kerith", ch. 11 (1916)

It's so good to be home.  Shabbat Shalom.

Shabbat shalom! Welcome back. It looks like you started a real Seret Hodi a couple of posts ago with that missionary post...

Welcome Home, Bogner. Israel feels better with her usual parts in place. And the coolest piece of the experience? Seeing the kids' eyes light up in the morning, when they see you back where you belong in their world. Enjoy that.

OK, Dorothy, repeat after me: There's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's...

Your travel log was highly entertaining. I'm glad you made it home safe.

Shabbat Shalom from Kiwiland. Had a nice surprise yesterday when two Israeli businessmen appeared in the shop where I work. Was able to Shabbat shalom them just before they left. I hope they'll come for dinner on their way back through the capital.
Speaking of which - can you arrange some biz down in Middle Earth then you can come for dinner too!?

Poor Zahava...having to deal with the aromatic aftereffects of an Indian diet...


Home is where the heart is
The brain and kidneys, too
It's also where the closet is
To store your suits and shoe
It keeps your wife and children
A-sheltered from the storm
So crawl into that Fart-Sack
Because it's Home! and Warm!
