In Jerusalem!

Well it's been almost a week since I arrived. It feels so much longer. I have been in Nablus, West Bank till today and I have met some wonderful people there. Everyday N and M and I left the house at 7:45 am to go to school where I helped put notes together and sometimes with lab. When I didn't have much to do I played games or talked to people. We ordered real good food at lunch which was more than enough for all of us. It was yummy.
Yesterday N and I went for a walk around the neighborhood with a neighbor and some kids. We got to see the area around where they live and spend some time with the local people. From the area we were at we could see a glimpse of the Mediterranean sea. We also saw an amazing sunset.
Today we arrived in Jerusalem, and after checking in at the hotel we went and walked around the old city of Jerusalem. Parts of the historic sights of where Jesus was judged and killed.
It was interesting to say the least. Every where we walked there were people walking and selling things. Where the historic sights were, there was a church built on top of it or around it so you couldn't see much. It was a big maze and we barely found our way out.
We are back at the hotel now and tomorrow we will do something (not sure what yet) before N and M drop me off at the hotel. I start my tour on Saturday.
Hope to hear from you all later.

Hey! I actually looked at your blog today. Aren't you proud :). Well anyway. I'm glad you got there safely and it sounds like you are having a great time. Noah says "Hi!" or at least that is a loose translations of OOOOOHAAAAAAH!

Hi Gilda,
Numarul de telefon care l-ai trimis trebuie sunat fara a folosi zero "0" in fata la 54 merge cu: 011-972-54-592-.... OK?
Te-am sunat dar nu ai raspuns, o sa incerc si miine.

Hey,
We hope that you get access to a computer soon. We are eagerly anticipating hearing about the rest of your trip.

You made it out of Nablus just in time as we now have a curfew.

Hope you're doing great!

Thanks for calling the last few days. It means a lot to N. I, on the other hand, am still waiting for updates. I need to know what you did and what you saw! Hopefully you'll have some time back in Maui to let us all know.
