Haifa Trip


Our Haifa trip was a lot of fun. We arrived around lunch time on Friday and had a great lunch at a restuarant with a view of the whole city.

It was quite surreal to look across the bright blue water and see up to the rest of Israel and then Lebanon. The next day one of Erik's employees and his family kindly showed us around.
We went to an Arab village...

Ate some sweets...

Saw Erik's next car...

We drove through dirt roads surrounded by small Arab villages. Having stopped by some very old olive trees, our friends ( who had brought a camping stove with them), made tea for us from herbs they found. It was very peaceful and relaxing. Just sitting, chatting, with no other people in sight, just a herd of goats making their way over the hills.

I'm de-lurking to say Hi, Hagit of Crafty Musings told me about your blog and I'm really enjoying it so far.
Haifa is my home town, it's so interesting to see it through different eyes.. and the rest of Israel along with it. Thanks for the experience :)
