Germany, Late Winter in The Black Forest
March 2013 was still gloomy and cold in The Black Forest (Schwarzwald) and Kaiserstuhl. Snow and frost covered the ground, piled on the bald tree branches, while the precursors of spring flowers began to split the layer of snow. The freezing experience was warmed by positive thinking and companionship.

Enrichment material from Israel Tour Guide Course
In November 2012 I started studying in a tour guide course in Wingate college. It is fun to combine lectures on history, archeology, geography, with tours around the country, where we see in the field what we learn in the classroom. I do not have time to take pictures during the tours, because I'm busy summarizing the rich information we get. I add my Hebrew lecture notes and tour reports to the
Touring Israel Tips Hebrew page.
Ethiopia, Wild Landscape and Modest People
We participated in the Meskel celebrations with the Gurage people, traversed the Simiem Mountains after the rainy season, along green and flowering slopes, and visited the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela. I admired the simplicity of local life. I traveled to Ethiopia in September and October 2012.
