Can you guess where I went last week? Here's a clue:
I haven't been to Israel in nearly eight years and we decided it was time to pop in for a quick visit. And by quick, I mean 7 days. Considering it's 5000 miles away and with 7 hour time difference, I hope you will forgive the deep bags under my eyes.
Some of my favorite parts of the trip were the worshippers at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and the Wailing Wall (no photos, I didn't want to distrube them.) The shuk in Jerusalem.
Fresh squeezed pomegranate juice. Yum!
Floating in the Dead Sea (no photos due to high salt content). The water feels like oil, it's so thick with salt and instead of sand under your feet, it's all salt.
The deliciously warm weather and amazing food. And the high energy of the people there. I'll try to share more photos later.
I hope you had a great week, though hopefully one with more sleep!
