Well, I got off to a bit of a rough start this morning–something I’d eaten in transit didn;t agree with me and it finally caught up to me in the wee hours. We had a terrific dinner last night
and I shared my meal with Tamar, Eytan (our Israeli host’s wife) and she was fine, so most likely it was something I ate on the plane. (Would YOU trust salmon served on an airplane? Maybe I should not have…)
OK, so I actually went back to bed for a bit and the little snooze and emptying my stomach several times made me relatively good enough to so, so I marched back downstairs in my gear ready to ride.
Food has been an issue today (turns out I barfed up the two most popular dishes in Israel, the ones I shared last night, so there was no eating them in any shape or form. I settled for mint tea for lunch and nibbled at dinner, and I’m sorry to say I was so tired I forgot to take pics. Wait, I did take one:
But you probably want to see some scenery. Here is without a lot of descriptions because I am overtired and have to hit the sack (we’re 10 hours ahead of Pacific time). We had fantastic roads, too much history to comprehend in one day (thanks Avi Ben Yosef for filling my brain with too much history to remember!), and great company. I’m going to bed exhausted and happy.
We are staying the night at a Kibbutz, which is an Israeli collective community. We’re about 2 kms from the Lebanese border. It’s a beautiful yet precarious place to live. More about the Kibbutz tomorrow.
