Touchdown in Israel!

sea of galilee

Hello All,

We landed safely in Tel Aviv today just after 2pm Israel time.  It’s a 7 hour time difference here so I pray you all enjoy your day.  Had a 2 1/2 hour drive to Tiberias in Northern Israel.  Our hotel is right on the Sea of Galilee.  This place is beautiful.  Some of us took a quick dip in one of the many pools that overlook the Sea of Galilee and others strolled through some of the city markets.

Tomorrow our tour begins – a cruise on the Sea of Galilee, a fish lunch (just like Jesus and the disciples would have eaten) as well as much more.  The day will be ending with a baptism which should be quite cool.  If the opportunity is made available I think I will take the plunge here.  I think it would be real cool to be baptized where Jesus was…

No great photos today other than this fantastic hotel.  The big photostream will begin tomorrow.  Check the sidebar for the link to the Flickr photos that have been taken so far.
