After a 14 hour flight from Newark to Tel Aviv, we have arrived. All things considered it went quite smoothly. Sleeping on the flight wasn’t really a possibility as the activity level never seemed to slow down. So we were a tired bunch going thru immigration. We were met by a tour guide and after collecting our bags, we were off to Jaffa on a beautiful coach. The landscape reminded us of everything from AZ to the midwest to Puerto Rico! We stopped at the house of Simon the Tailor and saw the whale water fountain where Jonah was reportedly swallowed. Had a lovely lunch in an open air market then off to our hotel in Netanya for some much needed rest. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow will bring!
