On Friday, I took a break from NaNoWriMo to join the second Scavenger Hunt for bloggers, run by Tali Tarlow of Jerusalem Scavenger Hunts.
At the first one, last February, I didn’t really know what to expect and found it hard to join in, so I’m happy to be able to announce that I think I did better this time.
This hunt took place in the area of Nachlaot. I’ve been there many times. I even wrote about it as part of my A-Z blogs about Jerusalem. And yet I hadn’t noticed any of the sites we discovered on Friday.
Tali is excellent at explaining.
We listened, enthralled.
We formed five groups, and poor Lisa and Robin had to suffer having me in their group for the second time. We were joined by Laura, who was experiencing scavenger hunting for the first time.
We got lost and had to ask several people until we found one who could point us in the right direction.
We saw some interesting places.
And to round off the whole event, we were provided with delicious bread and soup, courtesy of Village Green, 5 Rachel Imeinu Steet.
We didn’t win, but we did better than last time!

Many thanks to Tali and her team for such an interesting and enjoyable morning.

It was wonderful seeing you again Miriam! Next year I guess you’ll be running the Yemin Moshe Scavenger Hunt instead of me!
No way! I might have lived there for fifteen years, but I’m sure you’ll be able to show me plenty of interesting things I never noticed.
Beautiful pictures. I’d like to visit that part of the world and take some myself.
Hop on a plane, then 🙂
For these Scavenger Hunts it is way more important to be involved than winning! Everyone learns so much each participant comes out a winner.
What’s that “poor Lisa and Robin had to suffer having me in their group for the second time”? Don’t think I missed that.
A great post from a fun morning Miriam… and we did not “suffer” from having you in our team – it was lovely to see you again!
