A couple of interesting items today. Firstly the president and some trustees from Macalester College, a co-sponsor of the dig, are visiting Omrit, they even came out and dug in our squares for a while. Great fun was had by all. A sign for the Omrit Archaeological Park, still a bit of a distant dream, was unveiled while they were here. Here's me and John mugging for the camera:If you zoom on it you should be able to read it.
That evening John, Mickey, Claire and I went to my favorite restaurant, maybe anywhere. It's in another kibbutz about 10 minutes from here. Oh the joys of your own wheels. The couple who run it, who used to run a coffee shop in NYC, are moving to a bigger place in a nearby town next fall.I had an eggplant lasagna and a thick chocolate pudding/mousse for dessert. And a great German white wine and an espresso. Heaven.
