Filed under: Travel — demigod @ 9:17 pm

Yes, tomorrow 18th March i’m planning to visit Jerusalem. I’m taking one day egged tour available from the hotel. I thought better to visit this place along with other tourists with the packaged tour instead of going on my own. Below the details from the hand-out.

Wait for a detailed post with snaps from Jerusalem.

On wednesday 14th March Purim festival was celebrated here in Israel. Though the festival falls on 14th, you can feel the festive mood of the people here for the entire week. As per the book of Esther, Purim signifies the deliverance of persian jews from the evil Haman. People do exchange sweets and wear masks/fancy dresses to celbrate this joyes day. It’s good to see people everywhere, especially childrens wearing fancy costumes. On this day morning when i went to office, i found this on my table. Yes chocalates distributed by Amdocs for all their employees.

I’m back

Well, i really want to write in daily basis which i’m not able to do due to the travels. Yes, its been more than a week snce i arrived here in Tel Aviv, Israel. This is my fifith or sixth trip to Israel in the last 5 years. Staying in a hotel called Cineme, which used to be a movie hall and later turned out to be a lodging house. This hotel still has a projector in the reception, and they do play chaplin movies in the reception every day evenings. I’ll try to make a separate post about this hotel in coming days. What else just need to enjoy my stay here until end of this month.

That’s all for now !!!
