Last day in Israel
Omri had to go to work (he was lifeguarding) so we had to say goodbye to him in the morning.
Since it was still Rosh HaShanah, most places were still closed. Dan, Neta and I decided to walk around the botanical gardens in Jerusalem.
It was soooo hot and I was feeling soooo tired from the heat, so we all agreed to go on a search for popsicles. Turns out a nearby gas station was open, so we sat there and cooled off a bit.
Back at the Doryon house…
Before we left for the airport, some more family members stopped by the house — Doron, Yehudit’s cousin and Loneu, Safta’s brother.
Then we had what seemed like an extra-long flight back home. My feet were swelling and I was uncomfortable.
We had ordered a car to pick us up and take us home to Philadelphia, when we arrived in Newark. To our surprise, this was car that showed up for Dan and I!!!!!
Dan and I stretched out in the limo. I think we got more sleep on our drive home to Philly than we did on the flight from Israel to Newark. It felt so good to be home in our own bed!
