A Calm Storm

The blog of Sholeh Samadani Munion


I am learning my way around…very slowly. I’ve found that taking taxis does not help me learn the city streets, and taxis can get expensive anyways. I’m not in much of a rush most of the time.

I rode a couple of buses around the city today. Well, I wasn’t intending on taking a leisurely ride, but that is what ended up happening. 🙂 So I learned some of the streets, a couple of bus lines, and although I am nowhere NEAR getting where I want to go most of the time, I am starting the process at least.

And off I go again…

  1. When I was on Pilgrimage, I took the bus a couple of times and thought it was great (but, albeit, a bus and thus slowish). The clientele was much less cranky than that of Chicago, also. 🙂

  2. have you done taxi vs. sherut?
    I found the bus system was pretty good – but then I only rode once…
    also be sure to try the carmelit at least once.

  3. That’s the BEST part about new places! Learning the city, exploring, being lost…

    I know a lot about the being lost part.

    Good luck:)

  4. Just don’t get your hand caught in the doors of the sheruts that close automatically. I learned that the hard way in Akka.

    It’s funny how just about everyone speaks English in Israel but no one does in a place like Spain.
