This is going to be a very short post just to share my initial thoughts and start my blogging experience. After some sleep, I will post a more in depth entry blog.
The only place in the Middle East that I had been to before my arrival in Israel today was Egypt. Just driving around in the taxi from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and seeing the people in the streets and what their homes looked like is very different to me. I am in awe of Jerusalem and its history, the little I´ve seen is beautiful and I cannot wait to experience more. I know this program will fly by so fast and I can only hope to absorb as much as possible and use this amazing experience in my future endeavors.
