Thanksgiving in Israel

November 25, 2010

While I have to catch up on my posts from Jerusalem, just want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  Giving thanks in a country like Israel, where so many of the things we take for granted are cause for pause really makes you grateful for what we have.

I did get to have Thanksgiving dinner after all.  I spent the afternoon at bar/restaurant near the apartment called Mike’s Place (appropriate).  I wish I had found this place sooner as the people there are so amazingly friendly and nice.  I stayed and had dinner – Tomato Soup, Turkey, Stuffing…all the works.  Oh, and NFL football on the TVs to complete the mix.  If you ever get to Jerusalem (they have one in Tel Aviv too), stop by for a great time with great people.

    hahaha… Mike's Place indeed! Glad you had a good Thanksgiving meal.
    I didn't fare as well. Turkeys are unheard of here at this time of year, and I heard that they have to be imported from Australia. My salmon tagliatelle with a side of mashed potatoes (hey, at least they had those on the menu!) made me nostalgic for a proper Barmish Thanksgiving feast with good friends.
    As you say, we have so much to be thankful for and we are fortunate that we get to be so acutely aware of that by traveling to places that make us see just what we take for granted every day.
