Shalom! travel to Israel often, to NYC, have lived in few countries and in different cultures, citizen of two (US & Canada) .. Straight forward, independent, positive, happy most of the time, kind.... But, no matter what you do or who you are, at the end of the day it's just two people facing each other and it's better if they are together and not 1000 miles apart... Regarding 'no smile' on my pics --- no , I smile and laugh often as a matter of fact, love sun, sea and ocean waters, and nothing gives me a greater pleasure than my morning walk to the office - 40 min in any weather (Canadian weather)........... P.S. I've never lived in Israel and I do not speak Hebrew .
