The good news: I am using the leather jacket! It's been beautifully sunny, but there's a chilly wind. I am very glad to have this with me.
The bad news: I might be staying longer than originally planned. Somewhere between getting on the plane in Toronto and getting off in Tel Aviv, my passport disappeared. They let me into the country, but I can't get out without travel documents.
That is what I get for flying on a Friday 13th, I guess!
