This weekend was Purim and if you live in Israel then you know that Purim is one of the craziest holidays of the year (and especially in Tel Aviv).  The streets are packed with party-goers, costumed and ready to cause a ruckus.  I took advantage of the Purim craze by taking tons of pictures and getting a little creative with my costume.  I attended the annual Purim Zombie Walk, an adorable Purim Parade at the Bialik-Rogozin School, and had some fun putting together my costume (Where’s Waldo).  Read on to find out more, and check out pics and video from Purim 2011.  Woo!

On Thursday night I headed to Rothchild Blvd. in Tel Aviv to check out the Annual Purim Zombie walk.  There were all sorts of creative costumes there, including a group of friends dressed as Angry Birds and, of course, tons of Zombies.  You can view all my Purim Pictures in my Purim 2011 set on Flickr.

I spent last weekend on a Kibbutz on the Kinneret in Israel.  While I was there I did a lot of walking around and decided to take the opportunity to do a bit of nature photography.

The Kinneret is absolutely beautiful and so is Kibbutz Ha’on, the Kibbutz where I stayed.  There were beautiful flowers, palm trees, the beautiful Golan Heights and, of course, the sea.

In Tel Aviv, where I live, a man appeared a few months ago who claims he is the Messiah.  He sits in the middle of Central Tel Aviv, near the crossing of Allenby, Nachalat Binyamina and Shuk HaCarmel, and talks to people about the end of the world.  He also drinks beer, smokes cigarettes and chats on the phone– all things that just make it so hard to deny that this guy really is the Messiah!

The other night he was playing a game of frisbee with some of his “followers”.  I made a video.  Check it out, Jesus is a pretty awesome frisbee player.  Who woulda thunk it?

It would be an understatement to say that I like animals—I love animals; I am obsessed with animals; I live for animals!  Therefore, I was incredibly excited to visit the Safari in Ramat Gan today.

The “Safari” is the popular name for the Zoological Center of Tel Aviv – Ramat Gan, an African park and zoo located in the heart of Israel.  The park is home to the largest collection of animals in the Middle East.  It covers 250 acres of land and houses 1,600 different species from around the globe including mammals, birds and reptiles.
