Day 1: Shalom !

January 8, 2012

 

After a ten hour flight, I was finally welcomed by the Israeli sun. I made my way through the international airport, greeted security guards every couple of feet, and allowed myself to enjoy being emerged in the home of another people.

As I trekked out of the airport with all of my bags, I was shocked to see how Americanized Tel Aviv actually was. There were more American automobiles on the roads here than I have seen in New York, and every Hebrew phrase was followed by an English translation!

Though the American influence was explicit, the air was loaded with the Israeli spirit, and its culture was overwhelming. I arrived to Israel, and could not wait to fully experience it!
