I’m here safely now in Kiryat Ekron, Israel. This is my temporary home for the day as I will be journeying by bus over to Tzfat in the morning tomorrow.
I left my home in Akron around 8:30 a.m. EST Friday and then arrived at this house around 12:30 p.m. Israel time. The time difference is seven hours ahead, so that was a total of 21 hours of traveling to make it here today.
Tomorrow’s Lag Ba’omer which means a giant celebration throughout the country. I’ll post some more pictures of my travels through Newark and Ben-Gurion airports tomorrow hopefully when I can get an Israeli outlet converter for my laptop. Until then!
