Tons of fruits, veggies and all different kinds of dishes to make for a perfect Israeli breakfast. At 7:30 we headed out on our walk through Jerusalem headed towards Yad Vashem. We visited the stone maze which represented countries all across Europe who had Jews who perished during the holocaust. We then had a very emotional and enlightening experience as we walked through the museum experiencing how and where the holocaust started and how today it is still affecting us as a people. We then headed back to the hotel for a lovely lunch and we had the opportunity to also meet our lovely new Israeli friends! We have 4 males and 3 females on our trip from Israel who are all extremely unique and super kind. After a quick lunch and introduction of our Israeli’s we headed off to tel aviv for some adventures on the beach and jafa. We were able to shop and explore the city while getting to know the israeli’s and bonding with everyone on our trip. At 10:30 we were on our way back to the hotel, extremely exhausted but so lucky to have experienced such a culturally filled and exciting day!
