Today was our last day of our Israeli adventure, so we packed in as many sites as we could, here in Jerusalem.

The wind whipped past our little kibbutz early this morning as we woke on the shore of the Sea of Galilee in Ein Gev. To say that we were humbled is an understatement. The wind blew most of the morning at easily 5-8mph and chilled us to the bone. 7 am on the Galilee is rough, but beautiful. So let's...
