ON THE BACK BURNER

Nov.24

It was a quiet day at Lake Wobegone,Israel. We seem to do an every other day adventure. Today was a walk day to the place where we sit on a bench and watch a traffic circle. There are traffic circles every three blocks here, including on major highways. People do them and no one hits any one. Amazing. Here is the secret,one lane only,you do not enter the circle until there is an opening and those in the circle have the right a way. Sounds easy and it works for them. I find this surprising because Israelis are so impatient and are quick to blow their horns. Not in this case. Maybe we can take a lesson here. However, I still will go out of my way not to use the traffic circle in Venice.
