Israel hasn’t been getting their average rain fall so far this year. But that may change as, today it rained most of the morning. Mom and I got caught in a downpour while waiting for the bus. We laughed about it though, it was even more funny because we didn’t bring our rain jackets. So we had to stand under a tree across the road. There was a lady waiting for the bus too but, she had an umbrella. When the bus came, she let us go first, she was chuckling about it too. It was good. I love it when it rains, especially when I have something dry to go back to, that’s not a tent.
On the way back I got off below our street instead of the top so I could take some pictures. Mom kept going to the top. It felt really good, I like taking pictures when not in a hurry. Then I walked up the hill to the Apartment.
Both Pictures are of the valley, Afula is below and Nazareth on the hill.
The valley is known as the Jezreel valley, its full of farms and other agricultural businesses. Between here and the Hula valley, that’s where the majority of farming is done.
I hope they get plenty of rain this year, it will help with next year. I love seeing Israel become green after being dry and brown, from the dry summer. Last year we got to see it literally grow before our eyes.
