Let me take the opportunity to post an update our progress in Israel. We are all fine and healthy and staying in Arad at the moment. Yesterday we walked all the way around Jerusalem’s Old City, starting with walking the walls of the Old City.  We visited the Western Wall, and several other fantastic sites in the Old City.

Everything has gone well so far, although there have been a few curve balls.  Oddly enough, every time something has gone wrong, the answer is “…because of the Pope.”  I think that will work out in a few days since he is going home.

We saw some excellent things today, maybe next time I can post a few pics.
