The view from abroad

It seems somewhat absurd to be watching Arsenal v. Juventus with the sound down (for the sake of the sleeping kids) on the Hebrew commentation, whilst I shoudl be getting on with my thoughts on what I understand "organisation: to mean.

It is pissing down in Tel Aviv. I sort of got chucked out the flat this mrongin to wander aimlessly with the kids through Shenkin Street - a sort of cross between Camden Lock and Neal Street, without the stalls but with plenty of shoe shops and street cafes. In the end we got caught in the rain along Hemelech George (King George, named after Queen Elizabeth's Dad - strangely many of Tel Aviv's streets are named after British characters whom only appear as footnotes and statues in Whitehall). We ended up at the Dizengoff Shopping Centre - don't know who Dizengoff was, but weren't British that's for sure.

To placate a screaming Thom we had to buy a Hot Wheels set - which has gone down a treat and I am looking forward to adding to over the next few years. It has a certain dynamism that Brio train sets, nice though they are and good as a primer for civil transport system planning and desgin, just don't have.

Time for another chucking out - my host needs the computer and as I have already broken one tea cup today, I think I shoudl comply.

To bed and Paul Watzlawick's "Change: probem formulation and problem solution"
