|Melanie and Peggy at Dinner|
Typical of travel in Israel, it only took those of us flying El Al, two hours to get through the myriad of security challenges. There is a reason why they are the safest airline in the world. And yet, they still refused to believe that I was a rabbi. Though truth be told, by this time, I had shaven off my goatee.
Thankfully I had wonderful company on the flight back because the seats were immensely uncomfortable and the food was much worse than the flight over. Next time I think I am going to have to look into British Airways.
But in the meantime, I am writing this as I am now home. I am exhausted, and doing laundry. But all in all, it was a tremendously amazing trip. The only regret, I forgot to pack my teva sandals and take them with me to Israel. I can't wait to go back!
