Curiosities

"Move your horizon and get amazed" - outside (and sometimes inside) our borders we love to be taken by surprise by deviations of what we know or recognize.

2015 - Tel Aviv, Israel

The ultimate example of 'meeting halfways': clear indication in English that you need to make a choice and the possibilities subsequently being explained in Hebrew.

Marrying as a minor in USA is not a problem but visiting Pizza Hut unsupervised is!
