Someone invaded our house in the middle of the night. While we were asleep, he broke in through the bathroom window, went to the living room, snatched our bags and our keys, and got out through the front door. The bedrooms’ doors were closed. We heard nothing.

We discovered it only in the morning. The damage consists of my one month old camera, optical sunglasses, and documents. My roommate had a substantial amount of cash, and some documents as well. Of course, we didn’t have any insurance.

It probably happened late at night, somewhere between 3:30 to 5:30. There was some money on the table, and it wasn’t stolen, which indicates that the thief operated in darkness. The cafe behind our house closes at around 3:30, and I do hope that the robber isn’t amongst the cafe’s workers. That’s as far as our detective skills go.

Apart from the monetary loss, we also lost some of our sense of security. Someone could come again and also hurt us physically. Breaking into my car is something I’m used to. It already happened to me 4 times in the past, and it happened to more than a few friends of mine. Breaking into my house is more alarming. I thought Tel Aviv was safer than my hometown Beer Sheva. I was proven wrong.

Well, at least I got rid of my ugly sunglasses…
