Scaring Old Ladies:
While looking for the synagogue Saturday morning I found an elderly Jewish woman who was on her way. She saw me approaching her to ask for directions and cowered away from me with a look on her face that said “Please don't mug me. I'm old and small.”
After an awkward moment, I spoke to her in Hebrew. Though she didn't speak it, she recognized the language and told me to follow her.
Just a Joke(?):
Today my host and I did some more sightseeing. Among other sights we saw our second cathedral; cathedrals are amazing and speak to me of the greatness of man.
I have been asked to post pictures on the blog of the people I meet. So my host gave a man his phone to take a picture of the two of us. Another man, in a black leather jacket, took the phone from the first and began to run.
My host jogs 40 minutes a day. I'm not a slow runner and have some experience with martial arts. In a heartbeat both of us were sprinting after the man with the phone. He was going to take a beating. Before we could pound him, he turned around and returned it. It was all a joke. Ha ha, ha ha. So funny. My host shook his hand.
Our picture was taken by the first man and we continued our sightseeing.
