This is a picture of the AC unit in my new bedroom. It has become my new best friend. To say that summers in Beer Sheva are hot is like saying winters in Minnesota are a little chilly. The weather here is ridiculous. That being said, I love everything else about it. I assumed when I moved to the desert that I was saying goodbye to water forever. So imagine my surprise when I learned that my new apartment had a pool (see picture below).
Today we get a tour of campus and Shabbat dinner with host families, tomorrow is a pool party and a pub crawl, and Sunday is the first day of classes. Med school here I come!
