Day #2 of Class: Summer 2013 Ulpan Update #2

All these pictures are in fact from the Haifa tour yesterday. I will take pictures of class soon, but I want to get to know people a little better before I start pointing the camera in everyone’s face. 🙂

Below are pictures taken on the bus

Bahai gardens and shrine. It is impossible to capture on camera how long and steep this actually is.

One thing cheaper in Israel than the US: Fresh fruit and vegetables.

According to Tomer, our college tour guide, this is the best falafel in Israel.

But here’s the best part: Israeli candy.

Summer2013-02118 Summer2013-02119 Summer2013-02120

It’s all made with honey, and very delicious.

Final stop: looking up at the Baha’i Gardens from below.

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

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.

Summer2013-02050

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.
