No, there is too much. Let me sum up.*
Just a few, in fact a very few, of the near-900 photos I took while we were on a short holiday in Switzerland and Germany over the Passover break. I’m slowly editing and posting more to my flickr photostream, if you want to see a slightly less abridged, but higher quality version.
Too many thoughts about this trip to get down in one post. To sum up for now, a much-needed and welcome break visiting with people I love and people I admire.
Maybe more later…

WordCampIsrael2008 is over. Still mulling over today’s event, so not putting anything down quite yet. Meanwhile here are the only decent photos I managed to take with the new camera. (The one of me pulling my hair out after downloading the photos from my camera isn’t here.)
Also on flickr
One thing I will mention here. For any of the WordPress.COM WordCampIsrael attendees that still don’t know that WordPress.COM runs Google Ads on WordPress.COM blogs, please read the COM Features page, specifically at the very, very bottom, where it talks about advertising. Then read this FAQ about why and this interesting interview of Matt Mullenweg.
OK-one more thing. There is a social bookmarking tool for WordPress.COM blogs. It’s called “GetSocial” and it was created by an Israeli WP developer, Hillel Stoler. You can read more about it in my post, “Social Bookmarking for the WP.COM Masses“
Last Friday morning at the height of pre-New Year’s holiday preparations, we decided to finally check out the once-a-week Farmer’s Market at Tel Aviv port. Tel Aviv already has a well-established and famous outdoor market, the Carmel Market (Shuk HaCarmel), which is filled with hawkers and gawkers morning to evening, Sunday through Friday (Sunday being a regular workday here in Israel). So the idea of a Farmer’s Market, in part supported by Israel’s “Slow Food” movement, was to me a little odd. What could possibly be different about this market, which my Israeli husband immediately dubbed “Shuk HaYuppie”? (Somehow I don’t think you need that translated.)
