Yerushaláyim

Yerushaláyim

This is the Hebrew name of the city. I spent two wonderful days there in the Jewish quarter of the old city. This place has an amazing vibe, actually, i can not describe with words. You need to feel it by yourself.

I visited one of my really good friends who finally came back from New York. He has an amazing flat where I felt just like at home.

We have been in the most religious area of the Jewish quarter outside of the wall, called Ge’ula. Usually, i have problems with my clothes, my knees and shoulders are always visible, as it’s 40°C outside, in these moments some scarfs can be useful. Rarely you can have confrontation by the extreme religious people.

Zoodles

Zoodles

Have you heard about zoodles? Using vegetables as a noodles, maybe for the first time it sounds crazy. But give a try, maybe you will enjoy it as much i do.

The secret is, after using the spiralizer and having the zoodles, put them into a hot pan with some olive oil and let’s cook a bit, put some salt, pepper, and some sesame oil if you have it. It gives a good taste to your zoodles. Cook it under a cover for some minutes and you’re done honey! Put some sauce on it, maybe some cheese and enjoy!

The last time i made with two carrots and one little pumpkin, the sauce was avocado pesto.

It’s easy to make it:

  • 1 avocado
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 10 basil leaves
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 2 tbs fresh parsley chopped
  • salt

Put them together and use your blender to make your pesto. Mix with chopped cherry tomatoes in a pan and cook for 2 minutes, Serve and enjoy!

Let’s talk about the ultra orthodox community a bit. I was really interested in this subject because i didn’t know too much about it.

My first impression was in Jerusalem. As it was super hot i was wearing short trouser and i got the name of “shiksa”, it means not Jewish woman, and it’s kind of an insult (bitch, you know). Religion, that’s it, you need to accept it!

Last time when i was there, i was a bit lost, so i asked some people to show me the way to the bus station. Usually they don’t speak English, or just a little, the children are covering their eyes…it’s quite difficult to make contact, especially with women if they give you the devil eye.  Thanks God for having GPS at least.

The ultra orthodox Jewish are not going to the army, basically they are living from their religion. They give almost the 10% of Israel population and most of the people doesn’t recognize Israel as a real state of country.
