Israel-Day One/Part Deux

Yafo from the sea

Day one is OVAH….landed at Ben Gurion, LOVE the security here. Damn….it’s so nice to see pro’s at work instead of the “can’t form a sentence” people at TSA… Today I had a bottle of water that I’d purchased INSIDE the security barrier, except overseas flights have a secondary barrier. Without a receipt, you can’t keep your water and the airline no longer offers bottled water…so if you’re flying international out of JFK…keep your receipt.
Just how stupid is that, anyway? You can’t buy water until you’re inside the security barrier, but if you do want to bring liquid purchased behind the security barrier, you must keep a receipt if you want to get it on the plane…well….if it’s smuggled explosives or contraband from BEHIND the barrier, who is to say you didn’t buy a bottle of liquid and replace it with the contraband/explosives??

Ahh…..hit the beach and found the fine sands of Tel Aviv to mix nicely with the warm sun. Not terribly different from Hawaii, but there are no palms on the beach like Hawaii has. PongBall is EVERYWHERE on the beach today. It’s like a national game or something, except the rackets they use here really “PONG” when they hit the ball.  Dinner at White Pergola, and a nice finish to the day with a cold Fanta…

BTW, it’s kinda stupid to experience the romance of a Tel Aviv sunset at Joffa…

This blog is where I spill my guts about how I'm feeling at any given moment, and maybe a blurb or two about what's happening in the sales, video, or skydiving worlds.
