|Antigone Rising &Polina from US Embassy, Tel Aviv eat falafel!|
Immediately following my mortifying Mohammed moment, we went out to lunch. There really is no better way to alleviate the mortification of a terribly stupid moment than stuffing your belly. So that's precisely what I did.
Polina, one of our gracious US Embassy Tel Aviv hosts, was charged with the responsibility of feeding us. She went to great lengths to give us as authentic an Israeli lunch as possible. She asked around and found out there was an amazing outdoor falafel stand just around the corner from the school we just performed at in Beer Sheva. So we took off in search of it.
During our walk to the falafel stand, Polina told us the bomb sirens had gone off in Beer Sheva just a few days earlier. Apparently, missiles from the Gaza strip can only travel as far as Beer Sheva, so they're constantly under siege.
