The Shwartz family consists of
People: Adam, Shuli, the
kids Gittit, Sivan and Ayal, as well as animals:
Anton (we are not sure how he classifies himself: human or dog).
We live in Atlit – 13 Hasela St.: look at the Hebrew directions for details, or look at the
google map or google satellite picture (may not work in firefox). You
can find us using the Hebrew electronic map.

4-11 October 2006: The family goes to
Greece. More precisely, to Athens and the northwest of
Greece. Some tips: Greece,
like the rest of Europe, is expensive.
However, credit cards are not liked outside hotels. Many restaurants,
especially outside Athens,
accept only cash, and some accept credit cards but give you a hard time. Ditto
for gas stations and small stores. If you a promised a GPS device, check
again. Car rental agencies are quick to promise, slow to deliver. And signs in Greece are not reliable (even in Athens, which is by far
better than the rest). So a good map (or your own GPS) is a must.
If you like animals, you will find plenty of cats in many public places (e.g. Meteora, Delphi, Papigo etc.). You will find very friendly pigeons in the
parliament plaza, Athens.
There are "community dogs" in Athens
which you can pet (they are very relaxed).
July 2006: The Paz tour to Rumania is interrupted after
two glorius days, and Shuli
and Adi try to make it to Tel Hashomer.
April 2006: Passover
is upon us, and the whole family gathers chez Medini
(that is, Zila and Yotam).
4 March 2006: David Weiss is visiting (again), so we took him
on a short hike (Ein Hod to
the Oren Wadi).
19 November 2005: A trip to the sources of the Yarkon
with most of the family, and two adopted members: Dror
November 2005: A Yacht trip from Turkey to Israel. Crew:
Alex-Skipper. Or-deputy skipper and chief cook. Izhar-helmsman.
Shuli-deputy cook. Adam-deck boy.
We left Fineke Wednesday noon, and arrived to Haifa Friday evening.
April 2005: During Passover vacation we
spent one day with the Paz family in the Galil.
Unfortunately, we forgot our camera except when we arrived at our "Zimmer: the house in Pink". Then, The
Szwarc clan went to the Galil.

figured out my new way of displaying pictures, read the
April 2005: Hila gets a surprise birthday. In addition to the pictures
there is a short movie (about 10MB!), in "mov" (apple) format (wait patiently - it may take a
while to load).
