Episode 5: Stuck in Traffic Part 3

So I am getting back to doing the Episodes of the Chronicles. I have taken a bit of a break to do some other videos, as you have seen in the previous posts. This video was filmed several weeks ago when I was stuck in traffic. I decided when that happens to do some studying of Hebrew and to talk about current events. This is actually part 3, and I will go in reverse order similar to that famous Seinfeld Episode.



The Chronicles of Ehav Ever will continue.........‎

Good grief man, I would have gotten out and walked.

By the time you were done and walked back the car would have still been there.

Hey clnmike,

Trust me when I tell you, you sometimes can feel that way. Yet, what I was passing through was East Jerusalem. Cars left alone too long don't last long there. lol

I am surprised that the circle causes such a problem. They are being touted here because they usually have fewer accidents. But then, maybe we run lights more often here.

Your Hebrew study reminds me of the flashcards that I still have to study Torah cantillation. Your Hebrew sounds great. How on earth do you separate all of those syllables into words! (smile) Modern Hebrew is a puzzlement, but a joy to listen to.

Anon.- Thanks for visiting the site. The problem with the circle is WHERE they put it. It works on days when there isn't much traffic, but the problem is that there is a traffic light not far from it that gets back up. When it gets back up, which happens often, it spills into the circle. When that happens it is hard to figure out who has the right away. There are also a lot of construction vehicles that pass through there. so it is a recipe for a salad of chaos. lol

Batya - Yeah, I read your post on that and watched the videos. I really feel for you on that. I just have to go through that one area of backup and then I am pretty much free on my way to Lod. I can imagine how hard it is to catch the bus. It was crazy that today there was even traffic in Lod for some reason.

Hi Ehav,

I usually say "pakikim" for traffic.

As you can see I can see your video. Yes, I finally got a headset. lol.
