“Whatever your determination or will power, it is foolish to try to change the nature of things. Things work the way they do because that is the way of things.”
Miyamoto Musashi translated by Stephen F. Kaufman

Andreea & I recently moved to a house in the Galil area in the north of Israel – to a small village called Elkosh. To answer recurring requests  I finally obliged, snapped some images and well… this is where we now live.

This is a quick and dirty panorama from our balcony in harsh light – but you can get the picture…


And if you walk out into those hills you can see where we live 🙂


And this is what it looks like out there…




and this is Andreea sniffing the plants – getting to know the territory…


Inside the living area of our house which includes a living room, a large hall and kitchen – some images in daylight others at night…





and this is one corner inside the room we have made into an office… it looks out onto the panoramic view..


and soon we will have some images of Andreea’s clinic…
