For Lag Ba’Omer last Thursday, a few friends and I couchsurfed at Tifziland, an alternative community outside of Jerusalem in¬†Giv’at Ze’ev. In the past year since they have moved there, Tifziland’s five residents have hosted almost 500 people, living up to the name “Tifzi” or “mix.” Our hosts lived in small mud huts around the property¬†and guests camp outside under a giant tent (although my friends and I staked out the kitchen). We spent the night talking around a bonfire and dancing to loud reggae music with a few other international travelers.
