We left Atlanta Wednesday evening about 11 p.m. and arrived in Tel Aviv Thursday about 5 p.m. It is a long flight, but departing late in the evening allows one to get a good amount of sleep during the flight.
It was dusk by the time we landed. In the airport we went through passport control, got our luggage, and walked through the green customs line. Then we took care of some business to get a SIM card for a cell phone and pick up our rental car. We traveled from the coastal plain through the Judean Hills to Jerusalem.
We are hopeful that tomorrow we will have some sunshine suitable for good photos. Check back with us then.
Leon Mauldin is traveling with me on this study and photographic journey.
