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
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…
