... did a 15 minute report on EVERY violent crime that happened in New York City the night before (which is essentially what they do to Israel, and NY's population is slightly more than this whole country), how many of you would want to travel there? Yet people do, every day... they think nothing more of it.
So to end my little diatribe, which I apologize for but enough people called/wrote/asked that I felt it was necessary... As ...
... the Sea of Galilee. Poor Jude was unable to come this morning, she is so dedicated and had some archeological studies to finish off, and then a book on the universe to finish the next chapter. Anyway the rest of us tumbled into the van and made our way downtown Tiberius. We thought first we would go for a boat trip out on the waters, to hopefully appreciate life as a fisherman in this area.
There were a few boat options to chose ...
... on the Syrian border and from the top you can look into Syria. There are UN forces everywhere keeping an eye on the place and there is a huge base just down the road.
On the way back to Nazareth we stopped for a swim in the Sea of Galilee cos it got to 41 deg today and they all felt hot. I didn't think it was that bad.
Tomorrow I am on another tour, with most of the same bunch, to Haifa.
Thanks everyone for the birthday messages.
... best sugar cane juice I have ever had in my life! We also got to watch the sunset from further up the hill in the city over the far horizon of the city-scape. As two guys, we tired of shopping after a couple hours and decided to call it quits and head back to the hostel. On the way back we picked up some fresh pita that was literally pennies apiece. Oh, one last comment: the hand soap in our hostel bathroom smells just like strong red wine. I don't think we like it too much ...
... only missed one of them before figuring out we didn't have to sit on the wrong platform for an hour. Not being able to ready Hebrew is starting to take a toll on us. But we managed, got back into our part of town, grabbed food for dinner, breakfast and the bus ride the next day and then went to the room to wash clothes in the tub (last time, yay!!) and watch Jurassic Park and the World Cup. We are looking forward to moving along. Only 3 bus rides, 2 hotels, 3 cities, and 2 flights left!
