Rain, Rain, Go Away!

26 Oct

It’s a dark and stormy day here in Haifa. We had so much thunder and lightening last night – it didn’t make for the most restful sleep. At one point, there was such a loud clap of thunder that shook the building – I jumped out of bed and ran into the doorway because in my sleepy state, I thought it was an earthquake. The funny part was – two of my flatmates jumped out of bed too. We had a lovely 2 a.m. chat about the weather. Ha ha!  We currently have no power, though it flickers once in a while.

Outside of the rainy weather, all is well in Haifa. Yesterday, I went exploring with some friends. I ended up buying two pillows since the single one they provided when I checked into the dorm was incredibly flat! The two extra pillows were so nice last night – my new mountain of pillows was just what I needed. They were worth every penny!

After all our exploring most of the afternoon, my friend, Vicky and I went to a Halloween party hosted by the Haifa Young English Speakers group I joined before leaving the US. It was a fun group and we enjoyed meeting so many new people. The guy who hosted the party is actually headed to Reno tomorrow for a friend’s wedding! It’s amazing how small the world is.

Tonight the dorm social directors are hosting a Shabbat dinner for all the international students. I’m looking forward to seeing what Shabbat is all about. They are going to teach us the prayers they do too. It should be a nice evening. Outside of this, the majority of my weekend will be spend reading and catching up on homework. Fun, fun. What are you up to for your weekend?
