Day before yesterday we drove up to Amirim but before we did… we went and ate at Bertie Restaurant in Tel Aviv and as expected everywhere here, the food was fantastic.

Calamari rocks!

    OK guys, thanks again for having the courage to defy the music “establishment” and play in Israel. Happy Trails and Come Back soon. Keep in touch with the straight and skinny from Israel with http://www.israelnationalnews.com , and http://www.carolineglick.com for funny Israeli political news satire videos. By the way did you hear here the ravens cryin’ Quah, quah?”

    Hi Jorma–Glad you enjoyed Israeli food! Did you try anything REALLY weird that the Israelis serve? There seems to be quite a few places there that served Ostrich Lo Mein..try any? There also seemed to be a few crocodile-burger serving places down by the Croc farms in the bloomin’ desert… we tried one–it was Croco-delicious! anything?!? CYA soon in CT we hope!
