Mar 25, 2009 - We arrived in Israel!

It was a long and tiring trip but we arrived here on time today and no luggage was lost! Most of the group was able to get a fews hours of sleep during the 7,000 mile journey but after dinner this evening, it was straight to bed! We are thrilled to have an amazing tour guide here.

Pero por fin llegue. Era el principal puerto de los Cruzados en la Tierra Santa, el sitio a donde llego Marco Polo en el Levante (Palestina) antes de empezar su viaje hacia el Khitai (Imperio Mongol), y la ultima ciudad en caer a los musulmanes (mamelucos) en su reconquista del Medio Oriente. Aun se ve la ciudad amurallada con varios de los...
