World Tour Meerkat meets Arosha!

Little Treasure in his journey to manhood

Time has come for little Treasure to leave his home-land, his safe haven under mom's guidance and support, and start his journey of self-exploration and growth on his way to become a self-assured and independent man.

And what better place to start than in Arosha's studio and home on the beautiful Carmel mountain in Haifa, Israel?

The guys introduced each other, and Treasure immediately adapted to the warm November sun, and together with Arosha spent his first afternoon lazing around, tanning and watching the view – While Arosha is gazing at the beach, little Treasure is trying to figure out what is going on

Things became even more intimate as Treasure wanted to get a better view of the passer-bys… (should we mention the girls in bikinis?)

After a Falafel lunch break (Treasure found the balls to be a little too big for his size, and didn't care much for all the tahini that kept dripping), they went on to the main purpose of the visit - which was to teach Treasure a craft that he could develop into a profession.

Arosha was trying to explain his metal-working techniques:

But Treasure lost his patience too soon, and started playing around with AroshaTwists plastic cuff bracelets:

After an evening at the pub (pictures have been censored due to the misbehavior of both guys after their third beer), Arosha and Treasure bid farewell, and promised to meet again in a few years.

With much sadness, Treasure packed his stuff (which now includes an acorn from his previous visit and a plastic black and gold brooch which Arosha has given him with love), and left for his next visit on his world tour.

We'll miss you, little guy! Arrivederci!

I'm sure that's whetted your appetite for Arosha's work:

and his spanking new Facebook fanpage

and of course, last but not least, the world tour facebook page.

Aw, so cute! The inquisitive meerkat expression--it's clear he's trying so hard to pay attention and learn from Arosha, before he gets a little distracted... :D

Arosha, you have killer tattoo!

Love to see the littele meerkat had a good time. Can't wait until he gets to Jerusalem, to absorb some holyness after all this beer and girls in bikinis.

Heather Leavers said...

Sprincolors I think you are right - Treasure now needs to be purified! ;-)

Tracy Yarkoni said...

Is it wrong to be jealous of a furry little critter?!

Well, not for long my little pet - we're heading to Israel in December where I too will catch some of that sun (and hopefully a peek at the censored pub photos ;)

Care for a repeat performance in December, Arosha?
