There aren't enough words to describe what an amazing day this was....it wasn't simply the extraordinary biblical locations.....their beauty and power.....the history that is the foundation of the Western world...which was pretty amazing, I must say. It's having the privilege of being with our tour guide Amir Call Or who is an extraordinary combination of historian, etymologist, sociologist, geologist, archeologist, comparative religious studies professor, and story teller who asked not to site see, but instead site feel our way into the middle east with him and see how all the contradictory pieces wove together into the state it is in today...it literally shattered my belief of what the issues were, and more importantly how I assumed it could be solved AND left me with immense hope. He is an ambassador for Israel, compassion and peace with his eyes wide open....a remarkable combination. It was a journey on a lot of levels. I hope you are as lucky as we were.
