This weekend contained 3 firsts for me:
1) Hebrew folk dancing – not too fast or complicated and a lot of fun!
2) Ultimate Frisbee – not technically a complete first. I played once 6 years ago and really did not have fun, but this time I enjoyed it!
3) Celebrating the 4th of July – this has simply passed me by every year so far, but with a significant proportion of my new colleagues being American, I couldn’t miss it this year!
We had a wonderful time together, sharing food, playing games (another first – witnessing a watermelon-seed spitting contest! Apparently it’s normal 4th of July behaviour …), singing around a campfire, and home-made fireworks!
Oh, and we made lemonade again. Yum…
