This year we decided to do something different, kind of tired of the usual routine of one of us hosting and everyone helping in preparing the meal. So... we decided to have the Seder in the desert :-), and down south we went.
As you can see, we slept on mattresses on the floor. I had my mattress alongside the "windowsill", so that small wall protected me from the cold (and my sleeping bag and extra blanket I brought.. desert nights are cold, and boy was it cold!). But not the most comfortable. Funny though that on waking up I could walk straight away without any pain/discomfort (whereas at home it's a bit hard to start moving..). Maybe I should also sleep like this at home? lol.
Outside there was a sculpture garden, one of the sculptures being a set of swings. And not your ordinary only kids can sit on swings, but big enough for adults to sit and enjoy! And yes, it was fun :-) [if only the weather would have been warmer..].
The Seder itself was held in the central tent, with other people who, like us, were looking for a different kind of Seder. The atmosphere was really lovely, and we all had a really good time!
* Actually she did warn us ahead and was thinking of not coming because of this, and for her sake I'll say that each time it was quickly under control. But what really drove me crazy was her and husband's whispering every time (yes, most likely to do with the crying. It still was what drove me crazy, not the crying itself..).
I am beyond tired, so I'll probably catch up on reading your blogs tomorrow.
