This post is a study in contrasts. The first part describes Israelis on the move, grabbing the car and on the run; sometimes with a perfect stranger using WAZE. The second half is a collection of copies of paintings from an Egyptian calendar from 1995, timeless and motionless, fixed in space.
I had a wonderful relaxing afternoon at the Rishon L’Zion beach, about a 45 minute drive from Jerusalem.
Just passengers going their way. That’s me-hooking up with a bunch of ladies in an air-conditioned tour bus. I got my ride after placing a post request for ride to the beach on my local user group, in Rehavia, and a dear woman responded that there were still seats left in their Kihilah’s bus To Rishon Li Zion on Sunday afternoon.
My friends and I will be doing a “Drive Share” to the Rishon Li Zion Ladies’ Beach in September. Want to join us from Mircaz Ha’Ir Jerusalem? Here’s how Israelis are planning to share rides though WAZE.

Elhamy cherished the memories of the people he encountered in his life. (From The Old Wolf).
….Sharing is so easy, I thought it time to share with others.
Elhamy worked hard to develop his talent, and has done a wonderful job in an impressionistic way of rendering the nature of Egyptian street scenes. I especially love the faces. They capture the good-hearted nature of the people of Egypt, who – like many of the people of the Middle East – illuminate their country and are not represented by the fanatical, misguided loons who are getting so much media attention these days….(Lone Wolf)
