Coreyoria World Tour

“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.”

Shalom from Sunny Tel Aviv

I'm here in Tel Aviv and I've had a very productive morning so far. Turns out, the first hostel we went to was a shithole. 5 beds crammed into the smallest room possible and I drew the short straw and ended up on a cot that collapsed in several spots when I sat on it. And it was dirty and hot ... and pretty much miserable. It at the very least provided us with many laughs. We relocated early in the a.m. to a much lovlier hostel at the same price, called the Hayarkon Hostel. Also I took care of changing my flight and I'm flying back into JFK on September 1. Then, my buddies and I made our way to the Kibbutz Program Center where I found out that I will be staying at Kibbutz Ketura, located in the south, just north of the resort town of Eliat. There will be about 40 young volunteers and I actually heard about it from a girl who was in my West African dance class. So on Thursday, June 22, I'm heading there. And I should have consistent internet access so I'll be able to update my blog regularly. Today was pretty much about running errands, tying up loose ends, and taking it easy so my body can recover from the lack of sleep and whirlwind experience of the last 10 days. We also took it easy last night, but plan to really hit the town tonight because Tel Aviv is known for having amazing nightlife. Maybe a little beach time later. The beach here is gorgeous! Tomorrow, we're thinking of a day trip to maybe Haifa or Jerusalem or Jaffa. The nice thing is now we can fly by the seat of our pants and throw all of the structure out the window (as our tour guide, Chen, would have said- "Thanks G-d!"). The forecast here is, as always, sunny, hot, no clouds. Now to go do some laundry ... let's just say I'm wearing my bathing suit because I have no underwear. Too much information? Haha.

If you want my cell phone number, let me know via e-mail. I can recieve free international phone calls. :)

To anyone worrying about me, I'm safe and happy. I'm with several great people, in a good area, and everyone speaks English.

Lots of love from the Promised Land,
Corey

That underwear solution is a good one - not too much information. I'm contemplating it for myself. Of course, I'm not in Israel. But from the sound of horns blaring outside my window, I may be in Brazil (World Cup fever is in the air!).

Pillow fight? I saw it on the news in Tel Aviv. Hope you're participating.
