Overheard at the Mall

I am at the Jerusalem Mall and just over heard the following snippet in English: "Well, for the next few hours I'll be in J-ru and then tonight I'm going to head to Tel-y." Not only did the nicknames for Jerusalem and Tel Aviv crack me up, it was a good reminder that --unlike me who feels like leaving Jerusalem is a big trip-- lots of people go back and forth easily and even commute between Israel's two largest cities.

And now, I'm off to shop for a vacuum cleaner....
