Adventures in Israel

So, as some of you requested, I am posting my 19 favorite photos (of 700 or so I took) from my 11 days in Israel! The country is beautiful and incredibly varied given how small it is! There are a few of me, but mostly of…other things. Like ibexes. I  like ibexes.

Northern Israel and the Sea of Galilee. We were staying for a few days in the city of Tiberias.

I like cliffs. And terrain. I wanted to stay here and climb around but the organizers wouldn’t let me!

Water treatment plant (+ fish farming?) on the border between Israel and Jordan. We passed by on our way to the sulpher hot springs (which felt really cool and smelled REALLY bad).

Jaffa has weird doors that don’t lead anywhere! But they are very cool looking.

Jaffa, just outside of Tel Aviv.

Entrance to the tiny caves we crawled through! They were called Hibert Midras, the Jews used them to hide from Roman soldiers wayyy back in the day.

Tiny (awesome) cave entrance.

Eating dinner at the bedouin tent! We stayed overnight with the bedouins  (ok “bedouin disneyland”….one giant tent slept all 50 of us), went star-gazing (so many stars in the Negev Desert!!) and then woke up to go camel riding and hike up Masada. The table has 5 americans and 3 israelis.

Camel shadows! This doesn’t tell you guys anything, but I loved the photo so its going here anyway :-p

Ok, I guess I just really like desert photos? This is from the walk up Masada.

From the top of Masada, overlooking the Dead Sea (where we went swimming!)

IMG_3255
We hiked to Nachal David to see a waterfall, and on the way found a whole family of ibexes! They were so close.

Outer wall of the inner city of Jerusalem.

IMG_3344
The Western Wall in Jerusalem. This is the most holy place on earth for Jews, as it is the closest remaining structure to the second temple. Men and women pray on different sides.

The old city of Jerusalem.

That’s all! I have (as I said) hundreds more photos, but these were my favorites. It was an incredible trip!
