Woke up so well rested after such a long day yesterday, but I guess I should be used to this by now. I ate delicious breakfast which consisted of bread, cheese, chocolate croissant, creamy yogurt, potatoes (which Israel makes so good) and potatoe kugel. The view outside our hotel room was gorgeous and unexpected with the beach which is really the sea of Galilee, surrounded by the mountains. Its seriously gorgeous outside!!!
On the other side of the hotel all the housing and buildings are built into the mountains, not build on the mountains. It’s a really neat way to build. Seems pretty environmentally friendly, for all those concerned.
This morning we are on our way to the Banyas which our tour guide eluded to as “Sheer Pandemoneium”. Along the way, we picked up our 8 Israeli soldiers that would accompany us for the next few days. They joined us to help us learn and understand the culture of Israel better. After the hike which I would call more of a stroll up and down stairs and across some wood bridges, it led us to such a lush and serene waterfall. We saw other birthright groups and it was really quick and then we scurried back to the bus because there’s too much to see and not enough time.
Getting to know the soldiers is so fun because they are really nice and cool!
