The Look: Israeli Army + Granny Smith Apple

Fun Fact: Caillianne and I lived in Israel on a kibbutz called Nir David for three months in 1999 and were volunteers! We lived with other volunteers who came from all over the world.. places like South Africa, London, Sweden and Ireland! We all lived together in a house (kinda like MTV Real World, but WAY MORE RUGGED and not video taped..haha). We all had jobs to do on the kibbutz and mine was to take care of the Kangaroos at the Australian Kangaroo Zoo (also known as "Gan"Garoo"), that was next door to the kibbutz. I had to wake up at 5:30 AM and pick up kangaroo poop until 8:00 AM, have breakfast and then go back at 8:45 AM to finish the poop pick-up (haha) and clean the bunny cages, the Emu's den and rake the grounds to be finished at 1PM. The sun was too hot to work after that so we would go to the Fresh Water Spring (it ran through the kibbutz) then we would swim all day and party all night! I'll never forget those three months! This jacket that I'm wearing reminds me of khaki uniform I had to wear! I was even written up in the Israeli newspaper with a picture of a Mama kangaroo and her baby--it was really sweet! Pin It Now!
