I've just returned from the Ben-Gurion Int'l Airport. I drove my grandparents there; they're flying to Poland for their yearly vacation (more on that in my upcoming notes from our joint trip to Poland, last year).

On the way, we talked about the idea of the Kibbutz, Yiddish, German, Greek, Polish, Hebrew as a third language, and Verdi's Nabucco.

I miss them already.
