Never without


Since the army doesn’t provide me with transportation I’m dependent on a taxi driver to travel from base to base.
Today the taxi driver drove me from Tel Aviv to the Golan Heights and back. Tomorrow we will be going to Eilat.
He seems to be extremely happy with me as customer. His wife is from the Philippines, his third one, he carries always a gun and he loves saying things as: “Life is like a movie.” He doesn’t ask any questions -- that is the good thing about him.
Maybe it is because of his gun. “I go nowhere without her,” he told me proudly today.
