I don't remember exactly what Peggy was doing in this picture, but it appears to be just before check-in.
These T-shirts were on display at the check in area.
We arrived at JFK and had lunch while we waited for our EL AL Flight to Tel Aviv. I was happy to find out that Peggy, David and I were sitting together. I got the window seat! It was a VERY long flight, but it went well. We were served two meals. There were a lot of Jewish people returning to Israel on this flight. I think these two men were praying.
We were expecting a direct flight to Tel Aviv, but found out that the plane would be stopping in Berlin, Germany to refuel. That added time to our flight.
When we landed in Tel Aviv (Ben Gurion Airport) we met our tour guide Hanna. The original plans had us going to Independence Hall and Jaffa, but because of the refueling delay, we went directly to our hotel DAN PANORAMA TEL AVIV. We were given a brief welcome reception
Hanna suggested we drop our luggage in our rooms and then cross the road to the park and catch the sunset over the Mediterranean Sea. Peg, David and I decided to try to find a geocache instead (Clore Park Re-visited). We met up with others from our group in the park.
Supper that evening was PHENOMENAL. There were several kinds of meat including goose and lamb and veal. The deserts were AMAZING. I don't remember much about the room there, but we did have a partial view of the Mediterranean. The main thing I remember is that a large piece of the ceiling in the hallway outside our room fell down !
