falafel, shawarma, or pizza – day 10

Saturday, Day 10, was our last day in Israel.  Thus, this is the last post from my February trip to Israel.  We started the day with a talk by an Israeli intelligence expert on a brief history of the issues between Israel and the Arab countries.  It was very interesting, but, as you can see below, it was a bit early considering the late night we had had.  After that, we did a bit of walking around Jerusalem, saw some government buildings, and eventually made it to a park, where we spent an hour or so talking about what the trip meant to each of us.  After that, a quick ride back to the airport and home we went.

This was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken.  I spent at least a few days with 51 awesome people, learned a lot of new facts, and brought back a lot of memories.  Our group was great.  We started with 42 in the US, including 2 great staff members.  I can’t imagine a guide being much better than Yaron.  And the 9 Israelis we spent a few days with were all a lot of fun.

It’s a trip that I’ll never forget (with the help of over a thousand photos), and I look forward to getting back to Israel very soon.
