Truly at last.
Yesterday brought together the new sights and smells of the eccentric open air market and the balmy breeze and warm waters of the Tel Aviv beach.
Today we finally ventured south out of the city: through crowded streets of crazed drivers to the Masachim Film School and our first honest interaction with the people of Israel. We were welcomed and promptly began the exchange of respective slang with the high schoolers. Next came a friendly fútbol game resulting in Andres getting schooled and general bonding. After a good laugh, we juggled and socialized. It became increasingly clear that although we, as kids and as cultures, were starkly different, we were also remarkably similar.
As today comes to a close, we can only imagine what tomorrow will bring.
