  • Building by the sea
    Last Saturday evening I went to a concert by the Idan Reikal Project in Caesarea, Israel. The concert was held in the ancient Roman theater built by King Herod the Great on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea more than 2,000 years ago. The audience faced the water, and when my eyes were not being blinded by the light show accompanying the music, I could see the moon shining on the water as it set.
