On Friday, October 3rd, I rode my bike down the middle of the highway from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and back.

It’s raining for the first time since I arrived here 38 days ago.
Selichot at the Kotel
Thursday night, Career Israel organized a trip to Jerusalem to visit the Kotel (wailing wall) after midnight for Selichot.
We left around 6pm.
September Round Up
Yesterday was the first day of the Jewish new year, and things have been pretty busy the last few weeks.
Back in the saddle
I met Alon last week at Performance Rock, the rock climbing gym I have a membership to here in Tel Aviv. We connected both over climbing and also our love of cycling as a lifestyle.
Tonight he invited me to join him on a 40km route he devised that heads south through Yaffo and out of the city. There’s no good riding in the TLV metropolitan area, apparently, and even our ride tonight was entirely busy, multi-lane roads. It was also Alon’s first time on a road ride with someone else.
Despite the numerous close calls and angry drivers, we had a really good time and made it back unscathed before grabbing a beer and heading to his friend’s house to hang out on the roof for a bit.
All in all a really great night.
Visited the Tel Aviv SPCA today
Sorry for the lack of updates! The internet here seems to have a limited number of connections, of which my phone is one but my computer is not. I figured out a way to force a new IP address tonight, though, so I’ve got some time to finally make a post!
