Day 1: Planting Our Roots

14 Jun

imageToday is June 13th. We’re on the plane. Sydney was just paid $100 to one one row back so thus guy can have the window seat. The wait before take off was long. Jake and I are talking deeply on weather. We think Benadryl will put us out for a reasonable amount of time. We land 10 hours later, pass customs are now now in Israel. Excitement is high. We get an amazing tour of acres and acres of Israeli biblical plant park. We plant trees, almond and oak, and put them wherever we want. Personally, my connection with Israel has changed from the planting on day one drastically. Then we went to the Haas Promenade in Jerusalem for a beautiful overlook of time city at sunset. We had dinner at the hotel, a short activity about the map of Israel and its borders. Well, off to tomorrow. Layla tov!
