Trip is going wonderfully, a fantastic opportunity for my Christian friends to see and experience Israel. Nadav has been terrific; he and I have tweaked the schedules at times as we discovered not everyone was as physically fit as they used to be. Our driver, extremely personable and friendly. We arrived in Jerusalem yesterday afternoon and begin touring the city in a few hours. So much has changed but I can still find my way around the main streets. Sue and I have snuck away several evenings to visit family and will do so again tonight to be with friends.

EVERYONE is raving about Kfar Blum; rooms and food were  fabulous. People will not soon forget Israeli breakfasts either.
