This is my apartment in Safed, Israel that I moved into in 1981 and moved out of at the end of 1985. It was at ground level and was a very high building with an elevator. Notice that the barred window also has a metal shade because terrorists could come in if it wasn't this way. All ground level buildings and stores had protection like this on windows.
I'm sitting on an extra bed in our living room in September. It is night. It's hot and I'm wearing a caftan. We had just moved in and were yet to buy furniture. There is no air conditioning, only a fan that we bought.
