End of summer

While people are suffering and the demand for electricty has hit an all time high,

  some of the flowers are thriving in this weather, the blue Ofrit Hakef  is everywhere.

This summer’s heat and humidity seem endless,









but the end of summer is quickly approaching,

and the various summer events are coming to an end

with another major event planned on the plaza of the Jerusalem Theater for next week.


In spite of the heat, the 25th annual Kite Festival

 was held August 17th at the Israel Museum

the new, refurbished

Israel Museum.

Kites of all sizes and shapes and enthusiasts

of all ages participated.

Parked cars lined the sidewalks near the museum, a sure sign of a successful event.

In contrast though,

the international arts festival has ended and in spite of the record number of tourists here,

the pathways of Kutzot Hayotzer are once again nearly empty.

For most people September 1st is the first day of school and marks the end of summer,

but for others it’s the Beer Festival which is being held now…

    We’ve never had such humidity in the mountains here.
    I took the granddaughters to kite day a couple of years ago. It was wonderful. This week was too hot. The museum recorded close to 10,000 visitors on kite day.
