Passover has ended.
I used 150 eggs, large quantities of potatoes, onions,
sugar and chocolate this week,
and not one cookie or crumb of cake is left in the house.
However, there are still a few holiday leftovers that I would like to share.
Flags lined Israel Highway #6 for millions of people on their holiday trips,
while in Jerusalem you could find dancing on the streets
and families dressed in their holiday finest.
Crowds filled Gan Sacher, Sacher Park.
At times there seemed to be more tents than during “The Occupy Protest”
and so much smoke that I made the mistake of calling it “Gan Smoker.”
Gan Sacher is big enough, though, to find a quiet spot
for conversation, grilled meat and a bottle wine.
No need to go hungry in Jerusalem for lack of Passover food,
these matzah sandwiches were for sale across from the Central Bus station,
where “Happy Holiday of Freedom” signs and Israeli flags flew above.
I wrote the last post about the Aleh Jerusalem March
(make sure you haven’t missed it)
and the impressive young volunteers,
but these two children sharing a bag of potato chips were my favorite.
Those are a few favorite Passover leftovers, so that’s it…
until next year, when the buses again say,
” Kosher and Happy Passover.”
