I got a bus from Be'er Sheva to Tel Aviv, where the group was meeting. In my rush to be on time, I ended up forgetting a bag on the bus. I no longer had all of the food I bought at the fabulous grocery store over the weekend, the present I bought my grandma, my sweatshirt, and my towel. While most of those items were easily replaceable, I did need a towel to shower during the week. Fortunately, we were running on "Israeli time" and we would end up waiting at least 40 minutes after our pickup time at the bus station before we moved to our bus. So, I ran around the bus station, looking for a store that sold bath towels. I was successful on my mission! It wasn't the best quality towel, but it would dry me sufficiently. Eventually, we did get out of the bus station. Since it was a bus just for Sar-El, we dropped off some other folks and picked up some of our folks who had spent the weekend in the north and were waiting at a station other than Tel Aviv. Finally, we got to the base and had lunch. Another surprise was waiting for us- because the inspection was today, there was no work for us. We spent the afternoon just hanging out. Maybe it's because I wasn't constantly doing something, but today was the first day I felt a little homesick. I got over it pretty quickly though. Other than losing my stuff and the frantic search for a towel, it really was a boring day, which happens from time to time in "real life," so I was pretty ok with it.
