The waves were ridiculous. I kept getting swept out and sucked under by the undertoe and it was sooo difficult to get out of the water. The lifeguards kept blowing their whistles at us and yelling in Hebrew-- which of course we couldn't really understand... so there was a lot of waving and shouting involved. Eventually we realized that there was a specific swimming area designated by flags that we were supposed to stay within because there have been a number of drownings at this beach.
We grabbed some falafel (I think I have had falafel at least once a day since coming here.... wonder how long it will take to get sick of that... maybe it will replace my cereal obsession) and then took the bus back to campus. I talked to my flatmate a bit more tonight and through quite a bit of signing and pointing I think I figured out that she will be graduating in September and that we are the only people living in the flat at the moment... I think.... hahah but it would be a fun surprise to discover another roomie in the kitchen. So it looks like I will be getting new roommates for the semester which should be exciting. I'm trying to call it an early night today since I still am yet to really sleep here (yeah... there are some things even Israel can't change about me) and we are going on a 7 hour hike tomorrow through the Golan Heights... which I am super pumped for. I miss you all.
