After a long and tiring day, my Israeli leader, who so kindly let me stay at her house we adventured back into Jerusalem. We went back to Ben Yehuda’s and ate a really good waffle. I found some cute modest skirts. Then we took buses and taxis until we met up with some of the others who also chose to extend. I definitely feel I got out of this trip what I wanted without even realizing it. I din’t expect to love Israel or to make friends or even want to stay…and yet, here I am. I didn’t expect to make amazing friends or find out who I really am. I was and have been able to embrace who I’ve always been without even trying. It hasn’t been such a struggle. It’s been wonderful.
