Day 2: Jet Lag

A quiet day overcoming jet lag, though the amount of beer being drunk (not by me!) will interfere I'm sure. My task today was helping get some equipment out of storage and take it to the site. Gotta have that breakfast table!

The kibbutz was built near a spring so water is abundant and there is lush, verdant subtropical foliage everywhere. The dwellings all have amazing gardens and there is a large communal park with a burbling brook. In the picture above the bomb shelter we use for storage and for sorting out and recording each day's finds is in the right foreground.

It's a modern bomb shelter with a sink, air conditioning and a TV. Even a light over the front door for guidance at night. But the walls are three feet thick.
