A Special Evening Out

The setting:  Historical stone house, a maze of intimate little rooms joined by stone arches,   armchairs and little sofas surrounding tables, interesting posters on the walls.

A café with good food and a laid-back attitude of take your time.  And a chai latte that is out of this world – perfect spices, and an experience to drink.

The plot:  Friends who were once together daily, sharing lives,  and who now live on different continents and see each other about once a decade, getting together for one evening.  Covering all the news.  Families – especially kids, because lots of things happen with kids in a decade – jobs, health, politics, memories, shared friends, maybe a few dreams.  Different dreams than we had 20-some years ago.  Now living in very different worlds, but sitting together now, it’s like nothing has really changed.

Walking to the train station through an evening that has finally decided to be chilly enough for long sleeves.  Hugs, messages, promises to be in touch more, things we still need to communicate.

Too little time.  But a happy heart at the little time there was.

    So spill!
    Where is this “Historical stone house, a maze of intimate little rooms joined by stone arches, armchairs and little sofas surrounding tables, interesting posters on the walls.”? It sounds delightful.

      The new cafe cafe on Ben Gurion Street. The house that took a direct hit in the 2nd Lebanon war and sat roofless and gutted for a couple of years until they renovated it. The bottom floor now houses the cafe. It is delightful!
