Well Pesach is over and my brothers have returned to Capetown and all my cousins have gone home. Lee is currently working for Investec but is looking foward to heading to London soon.
It was nice having my family all around, full with life and buzz. I heard more about Stevie’s holiday in Ethiopia and the conman who fleeced their one fellow backpacker of a large percentage of her travelling cash.
I heard how he was shown the supposedly legendary location of our holy ark of the covenant and I saw pictures of beautiful ruins. I also watched the trailer of a film in which he he has brief appearance. Interestingly, he even gets quite an appearance in the trailer. Here is the link . I kept watching it a few times as it was quite surreal to watch Stevie in a trailer.
Jonx had his camera and took some beautiful pictures of the family and the seder. Unfortunately he has only sent me a few via email with high compression.
Jonx…. send me a CD with all the pictures and at the original size! Please!
The seders were fun and I sang out of key as usual. I am now eating bread again. Back to work on Monday.
Soon there will be a wedding in July with even more family (my Israeli cousins will be here!)
C’est la vie…
