We spent the first half of the morning digging at tel Tamar, and I am officially filthy. We have quite a bit or Roman and Nabatean pottery, but there is talk of a strike from the sifters. They want to visit the crocodile farm, believe it or not. It is hot, but not as hot as it could be.

On the up side, I am enjoying a homemade stuffed pepper with hummus and pita.
