Olam Qatan - a chat about Israeli, Turkish & Middle Eastern music and books

Olam Qatan is a spiritual books and world music store in Emek Refaim St, Jerusalem, Israel. I spoke briefly with it's owner Ya'qub ibn Yusuf, who explained some of the music and books available in his store. Sounds like there's a fusion of East meets West happening in Israel and Turkey, which is really interesting to hear. It's great to speak with Independant store owners - their passion for music & books is contagious and it's great to discover new sounds and genres.

first glimpse of the Dead Sea, Israel (video clip)

this is the view of the Dead Sea where highway 1 & 90 meet, East of Jerusalem. I stopped for a drink and to take a photo. then I drove down as far as Meseda - will have to go back another day to see more as I only stayed on the highway this trip. the desert is amazing - layers of beige. I was expecting lots of sand, but the countryside seems to be quite rocky. perhaps further inland there's sand.

Tasmanian Devil doing laps at Australia Zoo

this little fellow and his friend were doing laps of their enclosures at Australia Zoo when we went on 03/07/2007. it was about 3:30 - 4pm. I'd never seen a live one before, only photos. I thought they were nocturnal. we watched them for about 15 mins. so cute! they'd run around, stop at certain points and sniff the air. I guess they were looking for food? or could smell something in particular. or maybe the onlookers were too noisy for them (though most people were pretty quiet)

http://www.australiazoo.com.au/our-animals/amazing-animals/mammals/?mamm... has some info about them. they're an endangered species, only found in Tasmania now. they had been common on the Australian mainland at one stage (~5000 years ago) but not these days.

how to wear a sari

Watch the video

I finally bought a sari! Ted (from work) took a video of the shop assistant showing me how to wear it but I accidently deleted it. so I tried it on that night to take another video so I'd remember how to do it later. it's dark blue/purplish in colour with pink/magenta highlights and gold trimming. I think I paid too much but I probably won't buy too many of these. though I am hoping to get a couple of cheaper cotton everyday versions rather than this silk one. they gave me a brochure in case I forget also.
