PICTURES HAVE ARRIVED!!
On Sunday I was able to go to Hebrew U for a little bit
to upload pictures!
So...if you have a second,
look through some of my old posts
and check out the pics!!
Since I wasn't able to stay very long
(with the internet in which I was allowed to upload pics)
I uploaded some and am just now going back to add the words later.
SO...here you have it:
A few days ago
we had a special treat.
A tour of Jerusalem Center
It was pretty cool.
(the director of the JC and the Jerusalem Study Abroad Program)
was our tour guide.
He's worked here here
....for a long time (around 20 years I believe)
so he knows LOTS of cool facts about the Jerusalem center
and how it came to be.
(He started in the security department
and then eventually became the head honcho!)
He's a great guy
and he's hilarious!
|Here's the back of Sterling's head as our group is going through the door that leads to under the center.|
We were excited!
There is a tradition for students to write their names on the walls/
pipes under the building.
I looked and looked
for names of people I knew.
...until I found....
I decided it was only fitting
to sign next to Annie!!
(...although I have to say I'm very curious as to why
at the bottom.
While under the center Iran told us
a crazy story
about how the only way they were able to
remove the dirt on Mt. Scopus in order to build the center
was using a donkey
pulling load after load of dirt away.
(The process took about a month.)
[We took a group picture after the tour
but it's on someone else's camera...
so when I get it from her I will add it here :)]
It was a good day!
