Last night Israel made the transition from solemn Memorial Day (see previous posts) into happy Independence Day.
Two tall angels (or fairies?) on stilts greeted folks at the entrance to Meitar's amphitheater.
We sat on the lawn to watch local talent onstage.
Hungry ones filled the little commercial center, indulging in ice cream, felafel, and pizza.
Independence Day continues today (Tuesday) with thousands (millions?) of Israelis doing the traditional barbeque.
I'm happy to be staying home to watch the TV specials from the President's House, then the yearly International Bible Quiz, and later the awarding of the Israel Prize, and lots more.
Happy 66th birthday, Israel!
