After arriving in Jerusalem last evening, getting into my apartment and grabbing a late bite to eat, I stayed up until 1:30 am unpacking and organizing. I might as well have stayed up later, as I got very little sleep due to the time zone change. On the bright side, I was up early and got to walk around my new neighborhood on the way to the supermarket. It was quite a sight.
I snapped some shots of beautiful flowering trees, andI ended my morning with an energy infusion at Cafe Aroma. If you have to manage with jet lag, it doesn't get much better than this.
