Our First Guest and Trip Up North

Sara Romo came to visit us on her surprise trip to Israel; she got a free ticket from Birthright because a staff member couldn't make the flight to Israel and they needed someone to check all the kids in. Lucky her.

Anyway, Sara came to visit and we had her here over night. Her brother Adam (Dill) is coming to the Yeshiva in a few weeks so we thought it would be a good idea to show her around. We even found out which caravan would be her brother's - he gets to live with the maintenance guy. Lucky him.

On Sunday we went up North to visit Sally and Michael at Ein Dor. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of Mount Tavor but it was beautiful, it was a wonderful shade of green this time of year. Anyway, I hadn't been to Ein Dor in seven years so it was nice to get reacquainted with the place. Sally gave Naomi a tour of the Kibbutz and showed her the art room. The bus from Jerusalem to Afula is unbelievably crowded but its about a two-hour trip thanks to the new highways so it's bearable. I really like the Galilee but we missed the nice cool breeze that Efrat has nearly all year round.

Sally came to see us off and we quickly found someone to take this picture as we were getting on the bus to leave Ein Dor. This next week is a big week for us; we have a friends wedding to go to, Naomi and I both start school and we have to help a bunch of friends move into the new Caravillas.

One day we will move into them as more are built. But here is a picture of the ones that are already up. The inside is absolutely gorgeous; this picture really doesn't do it justice. The reason the first one in the row doesn't have a roof is that they are hoping to get permits to put a second story on it - we'll see, I'm skeptical about that part. Anyway, leave a comment or shoot us an e-mail and let us know how you're doing.
