We have just returned from a week's visit in Israel, where we enjoyed seeing our family, feeling the prenatal kicking of our granddaughter, and talking to friends.
The January weather in Israel was very warm, with temperatures in the twenties Celsius, a shock after the cold winter days of Bulgaria.
Also visiting in Israel during this time was Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, who met with Israeli leaders including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres. These meetings were not featured too much in the Israeli press.
The last time we saw Boyko was when we nearly ran into him in Sozopol.
