Hi I worked on the kibbutz 1961( aged 21) for 9 months- fantastic experience. I befriended a kibbutz member, married with one small child, who was very good at table tennis. We played a lot and he invited me to play for the kibbutz in a match. I was not so good but we won the match. Is he still there, aged about 70 to 80. I would love to rekindle old times.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was times.
Like a cool prison, and then I got kicked out. Toda Raba :)
I will forever feel at peace with the world, knowing the lunch-lady will keep saying "bevakasha" every day for all eternity.
