On the Ground in Israel: Summer 2013 Ulpan Update #1

08 Jul

Well, I’ve been in Israel for more than a full day now, so It’s time I update you all! First off, I would have posted sooner, but not until a few hours ago did I get adapters for my US outlet based electronics, and I needed to conserve battery. But now that I have them, I’ll get you up to date with all that is going on. Below is the plane I took from Chicage to Rome.


Below is the Rome Airport. It was much like a mall- much fancier than the Chicago Airport, until it was time to board the flight. Then they put you on standing only buses to the plane, out on the airfield somewhere.

My first picture in Israel Below. This flag is at the Campus.


Below is one of the Talia Dorms, another one of which I am staying in.




Below is the part of the group I took a campus tour with this morning.
