The times, they are changin’

Hey Y'all! I had some internet access problems and was completely cut off from the internet! It's a long story, but it's over now. So, sorry for the delay. Hope to post a bunch in the next few days....


The last time I was in Eilat was over 16 years ago!

I was single, young, healthy, and going to live forever!!

And there was nothing here!!

The underwater observation center was a wonderful, but dinky tourist attraction.

There were only a few hotels, one or two beaches renting snorkeling equipment, and a small, sleepy town.

That was it.

Eilat was, mostly, a lot of empty beach.

Not anymore.

The youth hostel, which used to be way out of town, is now close to the edge, but well within the city.

There are a plethora of hotels, each one more extravagant than the next.

The architecture is fantastic!

And there is plenty to do besides swimming and sunbathing.

I feel like I have landed on another planet!

Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.

With love and optimism,

So glad you made it there with your friend! Now please, I would love for you to post a picture of you swimming (if not diving) with the dolphins.
