Last night I met and hung out with an Israeli guy named Omer. There’s quite a few Israelis here, and when I meet them they’re always surprised to hear how much I liked visiting their country. Omer was no exception — he kept saying things like: “You really liked Israel, yes?” He had just gotten in from Japan, where he’d spent three months working as a handicrafts merchant, which is apparently a popular way for travelling Israelis to make money abroad. Who knew? We had an interesting night drinking Thai beer, talking about Israel and America, and watching the construction equipment tear up Khao San Road.
