Parking Tickets & Electric Trains – Miraculous!

It is been a very successful day for us. This morning, after Shaharis, Rav Yair picked us up from Yeshiva and drove us to Yerushalaim. On our way there he gave us two red apples that we had never had before since we come to Israel and of course, they are very expensive for one to buy in Uganda so people of low income don’t really buy them. He brought us cookies which I was familiar with for many days in Israel but had known how it is called. It was ‘Tayim’ a Hebrew word meaning delicious which we learned from him.

Parking TicketsWe finally got into the city packing yard in Yerushalaim. He told us that the machine at the entrance would count the time our car would spend in the packing yard so he needed to pay for the time before it could let us out. It was really amazing! We then moved into the interior ministry office and our visas were extended to October 25th of 2012.In office, there was a three colour painted picture on the wall. My mind was captured and I kept look at it because it looked similar with our Uganda flag (Red, Yellow and black colours) and the lady in the office saw that I was really impressed with her picture therefore, she told us it was her own painting! Perhaps I was the first person to admire her paint since she came in that office. We became friend there and then. We then walked out of the office with a big smile on our faces.

Rav Yair took us to the new city of Yerushalaim and there, we saw two electric trains. It was like a miracle for us to see those trains that do not exist anywhere in Uganda. We took pictures of us at Rehovot Yafo( Jafo Street), Ben Yehudah street and then went to Yamin Moshe, the first Jewish home outside of Old Yerushalaim which was built in 1862. It was such a lovely warm day for us in Yerushalaim. After that, he drove us back to our new home in Israel.

We are very happy to be here.
