A Final Thanks

Posted by on 10.29.09 in Travel, Israel

Here’s a picture of our Holy Land group taken on the Mount of Olives with the Temple Mount, the Dome of the Rock, and the city of Jerusalem in the background. Having traveled with fifteen people, I can testify that there are many advantages to a smaller group. We all got to know each other, we were able to visit more sites than some of those …

Malcolm and Muhammed

Posted by on 10.28.09 in Personal, Travel, Israel

We took this picture about 27 hours ago, at 2 AM in the lobby of the Grand Court Hotel in Jerusalem. I wanted everyone to see Malcolm and Muhammed, the two men who worked together to give us such a memorable Holy Land tour. I mentioned a few days ago that Malcolm is a born teacher. On further reflection, I don’t know that I’ve ever met …

On Monday night we gathered in our hotel room and everyone gave us the disks with all the pictures from the trip. The result was enormous–over 5200 pictures taken by 8 people over 10 days equaling 11 gigs of space. I plan to cull out the duplicates and give each person a flash drive with the best pictures. Here are some favorites from our tri…

We were reminded on Sunday morning of the tensions that lie just beneath the surface in the Middle East. We started the day by leaving the Western Wall in time for our appointment to enter the Rabbis Tunnel (also called the Western Wall Tunnel) that runs underneath the surface of Jerusalem and goes north along the Western Wall and finally exits int…

A Day Below Sea Level

Posted by on 10.24.09 in Travel, Israel

A Holy Land tour always takes on a rhythm of its own. In the beginning and for several days, adrenaline keeps everyone running in overdrive. Eventually a combination of jet lag and sheer fatigue from the long days leads to a bit of a slowdown. This is entirely natural, and in large part is due to the fact that you are in a foreign land, seven or ei…

Malcolm Explains It All

Posted by on 10.21.09 in Travel, Israel

On Tuesday morning we set out on our first day of touring with only four hours of sleep. You forget, at least I do, how hectic a tour can be. Fun and exciting and enlightening but also very hectic. You start early every day and you never really stop.In the five times Marlene and I have been to Israel we have always been blessed with excellent guide…

Good Morning from Israel

Posted by on 10.20.09 in Travel, Israel

I’m writing this note–hurriedly–from our room at the Dan Panorama Hotel in Ceasarea on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea in northern Israel. It’s bright and sunny and warm in Israel this morning. After a long layover in the Istanbul airport, and after sitting on the tarmac in Istanbul for an hour, we arrived in Tel Aviv ar…
