“The Corn is as High as an Elephant’s Eye” at Safi

Today, I visited Safi with the field trip of the very nice conference on “Archaeology, Life Science and Environment, organized by Itzik Shai and Oren Ackermann of Ariel University (see details here). After visiting the Soreq cave and hearing an excellent explanation about the geological research there by Avner Ayalon and Mira Bar-Matthews, we eventually got to Safi with the group and Oren and I presented the archaeological and environmental studies on the site.

And just next to the site, an enormous corn field has appeared – popping up just in the last few weeks.

So in the spirit of “Oklahoma” – “The Corn is as High as an Elephant’s Eye”!

And for those that don’t know what I’m talking about, see the original:
