We Is Back! (New Edit)

Hot Dog. I dropped one of my study partners so I'd have more time for homework. The upside is I also have more time for blogging, travel, and fantasy baseball.

Major festival in the village of in Meron this week. Meron, a small village of population about 75 will host 100,00 visitors on the 24 hour round-the-clock festival of Lag Baomer (May 16), when revellers will stream in from around the country and around the world. The festival marks the end of a month-long period when most religious Jews refrain from listening to music and taking haircuts. It celebrates the end of a historical plague as well as the publication of sacred books by Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai just before his death.

It is quite an experience. More to come.
