Day 25

Just a brief note on the day:
No excavation, that's right. Due to rocket launches from Gaza we were instructed to stay at the hotel today. This was for good reason, evidenced by the 5 rocket sirens that went off throughout the day. When the sirens go off, we must all go to the bomb shelters. We were very well protected by the Iron Dome and everyone kept a close eye on the news, ...

A Mountain Bathhouse

Today we took a long and winding trip into the mountains to a small town called Tzfat, which is said to be the birthplace of Jewish mysticism. I am actually a bit disoriented and have no idea whether we were going north or south to get to Tzfat, but I will check a map when I have a chance and update the post. It seems we have been kind of zigzagging all over Israel, and it's not a huge country to get around, so we are headed in various directions on different days. Tzfat was a charming ...

Sharm al Shudder

The nagging thought of things to get back to can't be ignored any more, but it's only with promises of being back soon that Yesir lets us go.

I'm only shaken abruptly out of this far away world by an early morning phone call from classmate Arthur. 'Hi, you coming to school this morning?' 'Erm, I'm on a boat. On the Red Sea…Probably not.'

Whoops. Back to Cairo, then.

The rest of the trip has been spent scrambling up nearby canyons, (don't tread on that snake), watching camels run with ...

Mt Sinai

A travel blog entry by longwaydown

We arrived at the base of Mt Sinai at about 10pm and prepared ourselves for the freezing temperatures and the long hike ahead. Tonight we climb 3800 metres up Mt Sinai to sleep the night under the stars and watch the sunrise. Mt Sinai is where Moses was believed to have received the 10 commandments and is a popular pilgrimage for religious groups throughout the world. The hike started off pretty easy but as expected it got harder and harder - the fact that it was pitch ...
