Chaya explains why there are so many synagogues in her neighborhood. (Hint: She’s religious!)
A quick pit stop to check out the view in Modi’in
Chaya is okay with being filmed, but her kids/grandkids are not, so I shot the view from Odelya’s home in Kiryat Sefer.
Chaya and I stop for gasoline. In the video I make a bit of a conversion mistake — It’s actually 3.8 pints to the gallon, not two. Yes, gas is super expensive in Israel… the vehicle taxes are even worse.
Chaya drops me off with Roman, an old friend from Kibbutz Bachan, the Kibbutz where we both lived when I was a soldier. It’s so nice to catch up with old friends!
1948 Armored Cars
Roman drives me back to Yehudit’s house. I ask him to pull over on the way up to Jerusalem to take a look at the armored cars from Israel’s 1948 War of Independence.
Back To The Airport!
I head back to Tel Aviv International Airport to meet Grace, my friend from Philadelphia who will be traveling with me.
And here she is!
