Breakfast in our little cafe surrounded by locals with dogs and newspapers. This is a wonderful neighborhood - the kind people move into until those who created it have to go someplace else because it's become too expensive. You can see it happening all around us. But it's fun for now and the Mediterranean is literally five or six blocks away.
These kids in the Carmel Market are canvassing to get people to sign up as organ donors. In Israel it is still difficult to convince people to participate because of Halachic rules about burial. Much has been done to change the rules, but the squeamishness has not abated. They were charming kids, and very committed to this issue - and they had quite a stack of cards of new registrants to the organ bank here.
It's almost Shabbat so my post for tomorrow is written and ready; this is the last one from here. I'm hoping we can go tonight to the beach for the drums that welcome Shabbat then to our friends for Shabbat dinner.
