(previous: A visit to Israel.)
From May 18th to May 29th, I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Israel as part of an program called Taglit-Birthright. Over these 11-ish days (of which 2 were really eaten up by an airplane), I visited 12 cities, spent 5 days with Israeli soldiers, ate infinity shawarmas, and shot 878 photos (after removing excessive duplicates, it drops down to about 580). In the previous post, I gave the tourist's perspective of inside Israel; in this post, you'll get something of a reprieve from my writing, since the content is dominated mostly by images.( Images and Words: The beauty of Israel.Collapse )
Up next: Conflict.
