"Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore."

.

As you  know from my previous post, I moved away from the Jerusalem Hills region on Monday.

This evening, after the sun and the 37 C / 99 F degree heat left,  I took a break from  cleaning and unpacking and went for my first evening walk in my new neighborhood.
After only two short blocks I reached the edge of the community; and as you can faintly see, Meitar really does seem to be in the middle of nowhere.
(Enlarge the photo 2x and you'll see what I mean.)

Welcome to the northern Negev desert and the southern Hebron Hills.

Brukhim ha nimtza'im!! may the move bring new delights, new sights, and wonderful highlights for all your followers! Meitar is a wonderful community. May you find every happiness in the days ahead, Dina.

Really amazing, Dina.
(I think there are not polluting repeaters in that area: our town unfortunately is full of them!)

That's a heck of a photo, Dina. I have a feeling you're going to like this quiet place.

This is good.

You seem to have what we are sorely missing here: silence.

Suzanne said...

I cannot wait to see me of your new digs Dina.

VP said...

The temperature is frightening and you seems to be quite close to the Armistice Line... Can't wait more news about your new place!

Jael said...

Spiderdama said...

Oh, wow! Lovely place, but I'm nosy about why you moved there:-)
I look forward to see more of this place

Kay said...

Are you in an even more isolated area? I thought you'd be closer into a city area.

MJ said...

Oh WOW... it's absolutely stunning. I hope you will be very happy in your new home.♥

Sara said...

I imagine the stars must be magnificent when the darkness of night arrives. I love those wide-open horizons.

Reader Wil said...

Great news, Dina! You were moving house! Can you show your house when you are ready? Aren 't you sorry to leave the sisters? And the friars of the convent! I remember our walks there! How beautiful was the wood over there.
I wish you a very happy time in your new house!

Dina said...

Friends, thanks for your good wishes. I'll be answering your questions as I get a bit more organized here.

Wil, Yes, I'll miss our monastic neighbors and the woods.
