I haven't written any comments yet (well, except for now), but I enjoy reading about your adventures. Stay safe, and we'll see you back on this side of the Pond soon!
What a beautiful trip :-)

That was one of the things I loved about living in Israel - the absolute safety (even as a kid) to go out any time of night and walk anywhere. Even now, with the greatly increased population density and the bars on the windows (non-existent while I lived there), it still feels safer than any comparably populated American metropolis.
Will you have time to wander around for a while, i.e., Jerusalem, Haifa, Tveria?
Just Jerusalem - short trip, and filled with day-long class sessions. But I feel so fortunate that I got to go at all!
Collecting lots of experiences = invaluable. Thanks for the updates!! I'm glad to be able to follow along, just a little.
All you're missing here is the January thaw. Nothing noteworthy.
I very much enjoy reading about your travel in Israel. Thank you for sharing this experience.
It's amazing how such a "dangerous" place as Israel feels so safe. I totally felt safe walking around at night. Then again, I was a white American Jew wandering Jewish occupied areas so it's pretty easy to feel safe.
Your trip is sounding amazing hon. I am glad you are enjoying yourself. Enjoy yourself as much as you can. Traveling is one the most thrilling things one can do.
When you become a famous lawyer, you can take Ferrett and travel around the globe to exciting places and exotic venues!
Sounds like you are having an amazing time. I'm enjoying reading about your time there. Not much purpose to this comment except to let you know I'm reading and not commenting myself trying to respect your lack of internet time. There will be plenty of time for comments when you get back!
wow. Nothing remotely this exciting is happening here. LOL You Rock and that meal sounds tremendous. Save me some willya? Just stuff some in your pockets and bring it on home??
Mmmmmmm...sounds like an awesome dinner.
Your trip sounds amazing so far--and I'm glad you plan to keep those harrowing moments to the one you had already.
I hope there's a way we can see pictures of all of this when you get back.
I love reading about your trip.
My fellow travellers are supposed to share pictures. When I have ALL of them, I will be choosing the best ones and doing a long entry with loads of pictures.
What are you planning in Jerusalem? The Old City, I hope?
Old City was all we had time for, and only a fraction of that. I SO want to go back!
I have been enjoying the reports of your visit to Israel. Glad to hear that you are having a lovely time. :)
I'm reliving my own trip there through you! Love reading people's travel logs...
I will probably never be able to go myself, so being able to 'see' and 'experience' it through you is a wonderful thing. Thanks so much for taking the time to share it with us.
You're off to Jerusalem? Brilliant! Want numbers of very good & old friends of mine who'll take you round? He's the former ambassador to Cairo & Stockholm; she's originally French; I babysat their kids in Paris 30 years ago...
Alas, I did not see this comment before going, and we honestly had next-to-no time there. One of the students came along as tour guide, though, and it was both good and bad - good in that he knew how to get to things, bad in that he wanted us to really understand it when we had only 5 hours to SEE it.
I am SO going back, and with Ferrett.
I'm so glad you got to Margaret Tayar's -- isn't it fabulous!
just read about the suicide bombing in Tel Aviv.. hope you and everyone in your group is OK!
We were fine, but I appreciate the concern!

Are you alright?
I just got some bad news about another bombing in TelAviv!

Re: Are you alright?
It did not affect us at all. Thank you for being worried!
