Shalom, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Good-Bye

What a long, strange trip it's been! It's hard to believe that our tour in Israel is coming to an end in less than 24 hours. We are frantically getting ready for our departure, tying up loose ends, re-packing our 8 bags, 4 carry-ons, 2 car seats, and stroller, and prepping the dog for the never-ending flight to California.

Today will be a whirlwind starting with saying our many goodbyes, organizing the house, closing the water and cable accounts, getting a final thyroid test, going to the salon, paying our maid, cleaning out the fridge, and I'm sure at least 10 other things that I can't bear to think about now.

Before we head out on our new journey to India, join us for a final recap as we take you through our 3 years here in Israel. Thanks for sharing in our memories...

P.S. Make sure you turn up your speakers!

You are so beautiful! You also do amazing video's, no wonder the preschool snapped you up to do theirs. What a wonderful momento of your time there. Good luck on the next few days, I'm sure they will be exhausting.

Hello I have stumbled across your blog from Earth to Danie. I think it's going to be a girl-fest in Chennai as I know of 5 other families of girls arriving! We arrive 17th July, when do you?

There is not much of a Jewish community in Chennai (only a cemetery) but do take the time to look up Rochelle Shah, a lovely lady (from the B'nei Israel community) long resident in Chennai. Nancy
