Philadelphia & Montreal

A few weeks ago I went to Philadelphia to visit some girls who I spent time with in Israel when I was 15! I found them on facebook after racking my brain for their last names. I stayed with one of them, Hadas, who lives in a part of town called Olde City, and I think you could probably guess why it's called that. We had fun catching up and Hadas, who is a minor celbrity in Philadelphia for being a reported on the News radio station there showed me her work which was pretty cool, and had a nice view of the city.

We had a bit of a reunion lunch with other girls that were on the same program in Israel and it was great to catch up with them, go through old photos etc.

Last weekend I went to Montreal to compete in a netball tournament for by netball club, Manhattan International Netball Club. We played 9 games in one day - it was very exhausting! The majority of the teams comprised of some greath athletes who originated from Carribean countries that are part of the British Commonwealth, as netball is largely unknown in North America.
Despite our exhaustion, we managed to get a second wind that night and hit the town that night and had a ball.
