As it’s becoming traditional in this blog, half way through January looks like a nice time to talk about last year. It’s also my birthday soon, so it feels like a more natural end of year to me.

A picture taken in Mitzpe Ramon, while walking to the sculpture park nearby. Other day I will post pictures of that place. I loved this part of the trip…Read more "The road to nowhere…"
