Desert escapade #2

“In the desert I had found a freedom unattainable in civilization; a life unhampered by possessions, since everything that was not a necessity was an encumbrance. I had found too, a comradeship inherent in the circumstances, and the belief that tranquility was to be found there.” 
Wilfred Thesiger

My parents came to visit and we decided to take a family trip to the desert, to one of our favorite places to be, sukkah ba midbar. A place of peace, with just the necessary to be happy. My mom and Alva chased lions and cooked "potato soup" with stones and herbs, we took a long walk all together, sat in our hut with candle light while outside it got really cold and told stories. We ate delicious food and drank wine with spices and Ohad and me witnessed first a sky of thousand stars and then a beautiful full moon rise. But the nicest thing of all was to see how quickly Alva bonded with his swiss grand-parents although he does see them only a few times a year. Here are a few pictures from our trip:
