Jerusalem if I forget you....
I am in the airport right now. It has been a hard past few days and I will never forget the time I spent here. I can't believe it is over but I know I have changed and this has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Shalom from Israel

On the Shores of Galilee

Love these girls
My fish dinner... Yes I ate the whole thing. I even pulled the skin off
Jordan river where we saw a bunch of people baptizing themselves

Sunset at the Kibutz on the sea of Galilee
Just after our boat ride across the sea of Galilee
Mount of Beatitude
At Banyas falls
View from the high tower at the castle
Up on Nimrods Castle. It was ridiculously cold and windy but still amazing!
We were so surprised when we got to Galilee and it was beautiful and green. 
It felt like we were in a different country.
This was outside of the center as the sun was setting on the city 

I have been awful about posting my life in Jerusalem so I am going to try and make up for that in a few quick picture posts. I was able to spend 2 weeks in Galilee going to all of the sites from Christ's ministry. I loved being there and had some of the most amazing experiences of my whole trip here. I have a new love an appreciation for this part of Israel.

Christmas shopping has started in Jerusalem. I only have 2 weeks left and I am feeling the pressure to get so many things done. There are still things that I want to do and see and I am constantly on the hunt for things I have been wanting. I was able to make friends with a goldsmith in the Old city and with his resources and my ideas we have been able to do some costume pieces while I have been here. It's been so much fun. I am getting really sad thinking about leaving and I can't believe how fast it has come. I am so grateful for the chance that I had to be here. I will try to be better with my updates these last few weeks. Shabbat Shalom!
