I discovered in Tel-Aviv

  • A full circle rainbow & The Motto of Tel-Aviv:

The first thing we learn in school about rainbows is that they are formed on the opposite side of the sun and you cannot capture both the sun and the rainbow in the same picture. But turns out you can (ok, it’s called Sun Halo and Circumzenithal Arc) I discovered it when I went walking on the first morning, just above the hostel:

  • Many interesting flowers:

  • The Al-Bahr Mosque tower and Tel-Aviv seen from Old Jaffa:

  • Palms, Skyscrapers, planes and the Tower of the old Mosque:


  • A lovely tiny shy Crab (for which I patiently waited some minutes to gather the courage to get out):

  • Things I dare you to decipher:

  • The Gate of Faith, “Briza Marii” (sculpture made by an artist born in Romania), the Zodiac Fountain and the amazing colors of the interior of the St Peter’s Church:

  • My Lunch, the Rainbow building and the Altalena memmorial stone:

  • My pink new shoes (and how fat I became this year):

  • The Sunset over the Mediterranean Sea (not to brag, but admit the picture of the boat is breath-taking):

Me pidió que viniese a verte y que hablase con voz

… Cambio dolor, por libertad… ta-na-na.. Que me ayude a continuar..

I started watching Muñeca Brava again.. even if I have probably seen some scenes more than ten times. I love them, they are so funny. And so weirdly skinny… when I was 16-17, when I saw this telenovela for the first time, I was like that also, so I was not noticing it, but now I see it like such a big difference, that, if I had to say which male figure I like, now I would pick Ramoncito, the rest are such children.. I’m now at the episode 192. (I mean I fast-forwarded until the interesting part). They started showing more and more of Rafaga singing at the disco and I have just remembered Gilda.

Anyway… I’m in the process of arranging my trip to Israel and I might have to learn few more words than Shalom and Mazel Tov. I knew also Aleph, some time ago, I even remember that I had learned how to count until 10 in Hebrew. Or was that Arabic? Wait. I know more words in Hebrew, I know also Kama and Ahava :). I wonder if I really had a previous life there, so I’m going to search for more clues, as long as I’m still 33 – the perfect age to visit that place. It’s this song, brings such intense feelings, it makes me cry and smile in the same time, it’s unbelievable. I have just booked my hostel and the flights, I can hardly wait.

The title is what Padre Manuel told Mili in one episode and my ears reacted at this alternative form of the imperfect subjunctive, which I needed to write down for posterity. I noticed that when I write in Spanish I alternate between the two forms, so maybe I’ll need to stay on just one of them.

I wonder what the Bible says in Hebrew, how different is from the version that I was studying in school during the classes of religion. Maybe I should start reading it. But it’s so weird, even passing over the fact that they read from right to left, it’s still weird. They do read from right to left, right? or left?!

A, I know also Bat Mitzvah – I learned that while watching Everwood.

Ha, I even have a category of posts in this blog with the name in Hebrew.

Meanwhile in the…

… experimental training base in Atlantis, the project captain came to each one of the ones “selected” and informed us we will be transferred to Earth… just right when we will be ready.

But, before that, we should learn a few things about the language of the people there. He told us they don’t have numbers in their language and that they actually consider the vibration of the words they use, as numbers. Just like here! I tried to understand their numbers… they say for them “Child” means 44. Interesting.

Another thing that was surprising for me… after the equivalent of “70 Earth rotations around its axis” of hibernation on the capsule, sitting only on our back, while being transported from our planet to the Atlantis base, orbiting planet Earth, we were informed we will have to learn the humanly walking functions!

First I tried to stay in my but while eating for lunch, I mean, still supported by the bed, but it was weird, I was having a feeling of dizziness and it was hard to support my head on my shoulders. They told us this is how Earth beings learn to walk, as babies. Interesting.

They told me I will go there as a child, but I will have to learn very fast to walk, in like “a year” or so, because Earth beings have expectations for everything they are doing. It’s like nobody told them they are simply rushing into nothingness. And then I am expected that by “the age of 3” I will be able to speak properly their language…

I’m anxious to see how surprised they will be when I will go there and I will already be able to speak their language. Ha!!! I don’t even know why I thought that, looks like the “emotions” app they installed yesterday on us is already taking over. Which reminds me what captain told me today… WTF… ok, I have a bug in the “time” app, because I thought today is “Wednesday”.. and I was so surprised that he came to visit today, because I knew he will have to come on “Thursday”… and he didn’t even correct me, so probably he had the same version installed..

Anyway, yeah, what he told me was that while being there on Earth I should start focusing on the good things they do towards their advancement as a species and encourage them to do just that and don’t get involved in their emotional struggles. He told me that upon my success depends whether the next shipment of Atlanteans will be able to arrive or not, as they depend on a certain frequency the Earth must have for them to be able to exist on Earth and not self-destruct, even before learning to speak their language.
