Considering that I'm writing this propped against my backpack on the airport floor, I'd say I'm being pretty coherent. Flight over from Chicago to Rome: nothing to report. Being in Rome was a bit of a tease; very excited to be back there in a month or so. Flight from Rome to Tel Aviv: pretty awesome scenery out the window from time to time. Islands that small shouldn't have snow capped mountains. You'll have to forgive me if I wax mythological, but I can see how those would be the homes of the gods. The longer we stay in one spot in this airport, the less people we have standing; about half the group is in various positions of repose. Just got word that one of our guys is being detained "yes, the one who's darkest", so that's the hold up. Thinking about busting out the frisbee, but that's a pretty bad idea probably...
