What a crazy week it's been! I'll start at the beginning:
Thursday night we (me and some friends) went to Lechet, a night club up in Kfar Vitkin. We had a great time and got home at about 4:30. I didn't get such a great night sleep because I was up already by 11 because Friday's activity was paintball in Beit Beril. Paintball was sooo much fun. It's been such a long time since I've been there. I think since I've been in the army. I would like to think some of the skills I learned in the army made me play better, but I'm not sure. I did manage to get shot less but one shot left a pretty nasty bruise. I did manage to get some good shots in though. Friday night some friends came over for dessert and friends of ours were visiting from Canada. To finish off the weekend the guys hit Mike's Place Saturday night and I got home at about 3am when I had to get up at 6:30.
Monday night was Lag BaOmer, one of my favorite holidays here. There are two Jewish holidays you can't truly appreciate until you celebrate them here. The are Yom HaAtzmaut and Lag BaOmer. While outside of Israel in Jewish communities they are festive, here in Israel you are truly immersed in the festivities here. For Lag BaOmer everyone makes a bon fire. We had one up in the fields in the south of Ra'anana. There was about 50 people at ours. We spent the night just talking, playing guitar and overall,just having a good time.
This has been one of my more busy weeks and it has left me exhausted. It was definitely worth it though. I really feel like I spent my time wisely and had a lot of fun.
