It's 2:00 in the morning. Some of us decide to stay awake - barely - until then so we can sleep on the plane and better ease back into Miami time, currently 5pm. We somehow make our way downstairs where it's dimly lit and nice and quiet. A little corner awaits us with coffee and pastries. Some of the kids go for their last "Arab shoeshine" on the regally appointed chair in the lobby.

We check our luggage one more time before it goes on the bus, this time headed for the Airport.
Our sleepy group departs for Tel Aviv in the darkness.  We arrive at Ben Gurion amid 24/7 security: armed checkpoints, interrogations to the group leaders, then to random individuals, thorough passport checks - all this before we even begin to check our baggage! But still, everything very efficient and organized. At last, we board our plane for Rome. Shalom, Yerushalayim.
