Israeli Holiday


I haven't posted on here in about a hundred years. There are so many singers I want to write about, but today, I am only writing about myself, and only peripherally about me as a singer.


I am in Israel on tour with the Collegiate Chorale. We're doing concerts in Tel Aviv, Haifa and Jerusalem. We've been here for since late Tuesday afternoon. There are a total of about a hundred singers here, approximately one-third of whom are paid ringers. The non-professional contingent of the choir will be going on guided day tours of the area, some of which we are also invited to attend.


Yesterday we went to the Rabin Memorial and to Old Jaffa. I'm not so great with history on this stuff. I just respond to beauty around me. (No snide remarks, please!) Old Jaffa is the oldest part of the city that was been restored and now houses mostly art galleries.

The day I left NYC (which feels like a month ago, even though it was the beginning of the week) I was out running a few last minute errands. I decided that I was going to get a disposable digital camera, since I didn't want to spring for the Real McCoy. But after trying three different places and not being able to find one, I'd decided to give up. On an impulse, I walked into a Staples and found an inexpensive little Kodak camera. I bought it purely on impulse and it's really fabulous.

I took some pictures of Jaffa and I've been trying to email them without success, so I thought, what the hell, I'll just post them on my blog.

So here they are. Enjoy.

Dear Daniel,
Beautiful pictures! Wish I were there. Let's have coffee when you get back, I mean it. Iced coffee, that is.
