Short and Sweet

I apologize for not posting sooner, with more exciting news than what I'm delivering today. Basically, I'm swamped in Modern Hebrew homework and trying to work ahead to hopefully finish level Alef before the end of September. I don't know if this will happen, but I will try. The plan, for our level, is to finish at chapter 22 in the text so I need to work ahead to finish the final 6 chapters; both exams are written on the same day. Plus, my placement exam for Biblical Hebrew was postponed to this Wednesday...it's a little crazy.

On a happy note, it looks like I'll be in Paris (yes, Paris, France!) this October to meet up with Jason who's there on business. So, instead of spending 2 weeks in Cairo, I'll do one week in each city. For the rest of October I'll be working on school stuff and touring around Jerusalem. I've decided to choose a site/museum to visit every day in lieu of classes, to both get to know intimately this city which is home till next July and to practice my Hebrew. Fun! You'll hear more from me then! You'll see more photos of me and my world then! And, a heads-up: I'm jonesin' for some Hawksley Workman...can anyone help me out?

This was taken at Montefiore on a class fieldtrip. Such a cool neighbourhood - the first built outside Jerusalem's old city walls. More to come...do stay tuned!

Okay, okay, okay - you're right! Julie, you did bring a smile to my face when I read your comment. Tanya's so lucky to have such a wonderful friend as you. Tanya & Julie - enjoy your day! Love Mom/Paula
