september 12 } time to meet my brother t and his family at the ONblackheath festival, which turns out to be a hodge podge of a kiddy festival turned music festival at night, but fun nonetheless

It’s been a busy few days since my sister and I arrived in London on September 10. You may notice that there isn’t a Part I to this, and that’s because I started this trip’s log with an Airplane Timelines post. I have very confused organizational methods.

honey and co founders itamar srulovich and sarit parker prepared the lush feast for us. it was a brief moment of being taken aback by the fact i was being fed by two israelis, but that is what the event was about: breaking bread, making friends, creating peace. yum!
