Only in Israel

Tuesday, April 25, 2006

I just returned from several days in Jerusalem. As in every culture, there are certain oddities that are just hard to overcome.
  • Only in Israel do the men wear their pants too short, their hats too small, and their sideburns too long.
  • Only in Israel can you be standing in a bus station and at 10:00 on the nose, everyone freezes for a minute of silence. It was like being in an X-men movie where Professor X stops time with his brain power.
  • Only in Israel can you see a bunch of 12-year-old girls serving in the military (although there is something sexy about a woman in uniform carrying a high-powered M4 rifle...grrrrrr. Jewish girls aren't as good looking as Arab girls, though.).
All in all, I had a darn good time visiting Jerusalem, despite the oddities. It's good to be back, though.
