The Year in Review | 2013

I can sum up my trip to Israel in one word: SABABA. It's a Hebrew term meaning awesome, cool, great, no problem, all right, or having fun. Sababa can also be a way of life, similar to HAKUNA MATATA. To solidify this, I found a store with the same name while on a walk-about near [...]
