Thursday – Feb. 18. – from the Negev to Jerusalem

On the road again – leaving the Negev for Jerusalem. We will miss the wonderful breakfasts at our desert hotel – great cheesecake, scalloped potatoes, and the unusual spices and flavorings in the foods. They have jellies made from all kinds of fruits and vegetables – very tasty.

Today we experienced a desert special – a camel ride! Most of us took part – so enjoy the pictures. You can see we really had a good time and lots of laughs!
From there we went to Ammunition Hill – where the fierce 1967 battle of Jerusalem took place. We met with one of the fighters – Kacha – and saw the new exhibit – an impresssive JNF project.
In the evening we had an interesting speaker, Adam Seigel, who spoke on real estate in Jerusalem. We always wanted to know “how much”!!
Warm Regards from Jerusalem,
