Dawidh Ben Guryon Street

Jewish date:  1 Siwan 5772 (Parashath BeMidhbar).

Today’s events:  Buy-A-Musical Instrument Day, Emancipation Day (Puerto Rico), International Day for Biological Diversity (UN observance).


Continuing my series on Giv‘ath Shemu’el, today’s street of interest is Dawidh Ben Guryon Street.  As before, descriptions may be deliberately inaccurate for the purpose of entertainment.  So if you come to visit and wonder why the Intefe robots seem to ignore you, that’s why.

Note all the colorful flowers.  Walking through here, I could have sworn I heard little people singing about lollipops.

Every city and town in Israel seems to have a welcoming sign.  This is the one for Giv‘ath Shemu’el.

Even things thrown away over here can be cheerily colorful.

Some of our famous tortoises, the last of which is extremely patriotic.

And our famous giant beetles.

If you look carefully, you can see a camouflaged crocodile on the rock.  Stay away from these, especially if you are carrying gefilte fish, brisket, schnitzel, cholent, or shawarma.  If you are carrying felafel or French fries, you are safe; such crocodiles tend to be very picky about their health and avoid fried foods.

Some of our famous decorated electrical boxes.  In the middle picture one can see an Intefe robot art student as well, trying to explain to me the significance of these works.  Unfortunately, his/her accent is terrible, and I only got the impression that the artist was running low on yellow and red paint.

The most original fence your humble blogger has seen in Giv‘ath Shemu’el.

It is amazing how many Disney characters one can get together at the same time for a convention.

Special bonus:  Barry recommends “The Best Of The Evil Cows Meme”.

Enjoy, share the weirdness, and happy new month.
