Happy VE Day!

This is another one of those celebrations that I entirely missed in the US. This morning, though, I heard kids' voices outside my apartment window, and when I went to look, a little parade was forming to honor the victory over the Nazis in Europe. My favorite members of the parade were the WW2 Veterans, some of whom with enough medals to cover their sports jackets-- and a few who still seem to fit into their WW2 uniforms! Here are some pictures:


  1. Victory Day (May 9th) is a HUGE thing in Russia/USSR. Glad they are keeping the tradition alive.

  2. Hi Maya! I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy reading your blog. I found it recently while browsing info on Israel and yours was the one that stood out. I love how you write about mundane things, well, things that might seem mundane to an Israeli but to us, living in the US and not familiar with it they are like a window onto your culture. Keep up the good work! Thanks!
