After breakfast I went out to exchange some Euros to Shekel and to send a package someone gave me in the mail. On the way I passed throw the Mamila mall and now I know what everyone is talking about when they say Mamila. I didn't feel like my knowledge of Jerusalem, my city of birth, was complete without this. The weather outside was very hot (there is a heatwave here in Israel right now) and I am desperately in need of a day sleep, but we are having our Opening Circle with the Pardes Year program and I am meeting all the people I will be learning Torah with this year!
Here are some impressions of my visit to the city.That is a random beautiful street on the way to the post office:
Also today I learned that taking the bus in Jerusalem isn't necessarily the fastest option. Thus, I am still looking for a best way for me to get around the city.
