beans, beef and rise can really warm-up your cold nights in a tent


purim same'ch!!!!!!


we celebrated it with these ozney haman that we made (not amazing but nice for first time... maybe some more milk in the pereg and more knowing how to make them could help...) and of course - with a glass of 'pinot-noar' wine that we bought throw the way, at suki's house (we know it's not enough alcohol for purim but it's the best we could do).

but the best purim celebration was to climb up to muler hut which is the highest you can get to see mount cook (the highest MT in new zealand - 3700m or something) if you're a normal person. within 3 hours, though, everybody say it's 4 and more but we are so good!, we made it to the 'top' ...and in shape, jyro is hard, you know.

you find yourself standing in front of stunning views and around you just snow, great mountains, few clouds and, how not, few israeli guys!

words can't really express this beauty. and to think that we got there by a mistake... we were suppose to start the 'galispi's pass' tiyul gadol on mnt aspiring and because of the surprising bad weather we headed up to suki. but on the way we passed the closest town to "cook" and found out that the weather for tomorrow is good for climbing (just when we started to curse this crazy unpredictable weather and all the mauries gods). we changed plans, again, and in less then an hour we were driving near amazing light blue lake, towards a huge snow mountain.

maybe the mauri's gods aren't so bad because we had great weather (for mount cook, in Israel we would call it - "what are those crazy winds?") and during the climbing there was sun and amazing views, we couldn't ask for better tiyul katan*...

our knees maybe could, we almost lost them in the way down...

from there - to suki, as we planed, to the warm shower, good food (it was more than good - we got apple crumble when we just got into the house that night. don't worry, we'll have the matkon and you'll eat that too) and a very comfortable bed.

now, after resting one day we hope to find good weather in the mountains and climb another one...
till then, you can check out some new photos(there two new albums, but one is a missing part from christchurch with its incredible botanic gardens), respond to them, or to our blog, and you can even send us an email, if you are so into it, like most of you... or not...
whatever...
we are still having fun, with or without..
so, drink and celebrate ad-lo-yada, also for us!
hag-same'ah!
