It's hot here, but that doesn't keep me from going out and finding people to interview. Currently, cooling off w/ an iced decaf americano - they don't do American style drip coffee here, so you have to order espresso w/ water (americano).

I plan to be in Tel Aviv through the weekend, then to Jerusalem for a few days, and after that, traveling to Haifa and staying there Wed - Sat of next week.  The current plan is to come back to Tel Aviv, but depending on how things go in Jerusalem, I may need more time for interviews there.  I'll keep you all posted.

Saw this article in the NYTimes today, and thought it was pretty interesting.  

Another interesting aspect of travel: using a guide book to get the general idea, but not minding taking an accidental wrong turn and getting lost is a great way to get to know a city.  Plus, it's a good incentive to practice my Hebrew when asking for directions.
