Trip to ISRAEL | Jerusalem & Dead sea part 2/3


That’s it, now we are going to Jerusalem We took a train People said that this train started its work week before (December 2019) It’s very fast If bus will take 1-1.5 hours, train will take 32 minutes 160 km/hour Ticket’s price is around 5 EUR I said it first, don’t repeat Look here, yummy! What do we celebrate today? These days Israel celebrates Hanuka And it’s a tradition to eat donuts So now we will eat them Will celebrate Hanuka, but in the evening – Christmas with ginger cookies Actuallly we got not so long way to go but we are probably blondes and spent 1,5 hours on searching You serious? As a result we returned to a place from where we started To this red statue From which our host Tomer said to walk somewhere downstairs and take a bus So we asked a hotspot on a street in purpose to call Tomer and ask him to meet us So soon we will see him We see him already I hear many languages here, like Hebrew, Russian, English.. We are at the Western wall Before entering one should wash hands First you should wash right hand, then left one We have just entered the wrong entrance, we almost went to the male side So now we will go to female side And right now we were washing hands in male sink, so this is a female sink 😀 You see, it’s a male side, so they said us to go other side Before women couldn’t pray at the wall and then there was made a small part for them Look, female part Male part You should read Hebrew books from right to left This is Torah (Bible in Cristianity) Everything is written In Hebrew Everybody is praying Here is unreal atmosphere, I want to cry actually Anointing stone We accidentally found a small street Seems that creative people are working here Let’s look It’s a restaurant, nothing interesting, let’s check the gallery I like to look into other people’s windows Look, how beautiful We arrive home and meet this lovely animal Sweet doggy was waiting for us But we don’t know your name yet, what’s your name? Beauty Give me a paw Do you understand Russian? Good morning We woke up at 6am We got few layers of clothes And are going to the beach to have sun and swim Are you sure? Yes, absolutely, because we cannot skip it We took bikinis and coats with us Now we are standing in a queue for a bus that will go to Dead sea At 9am, but we got here at 8am We didn’t take any excursion, because… We decided to experience the real life of local people I feel we will enter a bus and fall asleep If we will enter We will I’ve just realized that when I see Orthodox Jews in big amount, it looks a little bit creepy What scares you? I don’t know Do you think they got something in mind? Maybe because of the black color Looks like funeral? Here is some school Look Where? Here We changed and are ready for the Dead sea Made sure that there are no scars on skin Because people scare that if there will be scars, they will hurt because of the salt You see, these crystals are from the Dead sea, it’s a salt We made all the procedures We put mud mask, swam in the Dead sea And now we are drinking hot tea In nice company Here are guests from Turkmenistan I am from Tel Aviv Wait, you were born in Tel Aviv? No, I was born in USSR, in Turkmenistan How old were you when you moved to Tel Aviv? 3 years old What are the pluses and minuses of living in Israel? Life in Israel is very good Comparing to other countries, Russia, for example People have good jobs here You will not find beggars here You will find things to do May I ask? We heard such thing that Orthodox Jews are poor, is it true? No They don’t work, they just pray They get allowance from the government A lot of money, it’s a law They pray for sins of the whole nation We pay like salaries to them They don’t work, they pray, government pays them from my pocket Do you think it’s not right? Of course not right There are people who like them and who don’t Are they friendly? No For example on Saturday, when it’s Shabat (it’s a day off from Friday afternoon till Saturday afternoon) A restaurant will work and they will say: close the restaurant, don’t work They follow the religion Saturday for them is very important day There is one interesting story about the bridge in Tel Aviv There was built a bridge in purpose to connect people But in the end this bridge disconnected people because of this Shabat Because according to the project this bridge should be built on Shabat, when there is no traffic And finally there was a conflict But they built it What’s the name of this bridge? Yehudit bridge 12-15 hours a day they read Torah They don’t respect women Bad attitude towards them There are cities like Bethlehem, Jerusalem It is risky for women to walk there They may throw something to you or say bad words There is one area in Jerusalem, called Mea-Sherim It’s almost impossible to walk there As for me, as for you It’s a closed area Far from center? I don’t recommend you to go there Because there are strong Orthodox Jews So sweet, guys bring us chocolates Shampoos from the hotel 😀
