L'Yerushaliym (To Jerusalem)...
I stayed behind the rest of the group to spend another day in Jerusalem with a friend. On Fridays there is an art fair in the center of town, and I had to contain my excitement of seeing the array of beautiful jewelry and artwork. I also went through the shuk (market) a few hours before Shabbat, which is INSANE. Prices go down on Friday afternoons, and everyone is doing their last-minute shopping--slightly overwhelming. I got a whole-wheat challah--Taim maod!
This week it's back to hard core dancing. I am going to start rehearsing the piece I'm making for our big show that we can choreograph for. I'm using the music from the "Atonement" soundtrack, which has a typewriter sound in the background. My ideas have to do with communicating over long-distances and the pros and cons of technology today. I had an informal meeting with dancers last week about my ideas, and I'm really excited to start working.
