Picture yourself in a world of darkness, groping around, not knowing where - or what - anything is.
You're lost in a hopeless, unsolvable maze. Are you near a wall, a door? Are you about to bump into something? Your only hope is to trust in the skills of your guide, an all-seeing miracle worker who can somehow navigate her way through total darkness.
Last month, I finally got to visit the blind museum in Holon. Okay, it's not really called the blind museum. Part of the Israeli Children's Museum there, it's an exhibit called Dialogue in the Dark. And it’s been on my “Israel Bucket List” for about ten years, since I first read about it in a magazine.
Your own personal Virgil
When you go in, you enter a world of total darkness. You leave everything behind in a locker – glasses, keys, phones (except a small amount of pre-counted money for the snack bar).
Luckily, you're given your own Virgil, a blind guide who knows her way around like the back of her hand.
