First weekend

This weekend we went on two tours.  Saturday we went to Caesarea, Megiddo, and Nazareth.  All of these places were absolutely beautiful.  It was nice to get out of the hotel and tour Israel.  Then on Sunday we climbed Herodian and saw the magnificent view from there.  It was definitely a work out.  We were climbing a steep hill in the heat, but all in all it was a good time.  Then all of us Bethlehem, PA people went to Bethlehem.  We toured the Church of Nativity while two weddings were going on.  Dr. Appler and Dr. Manfred performed a nice, small church service.  The Church of Nativity is absolutely breathtaking.  After that we returned back to the hotel for dinner and our class.  Now it is the start of the second week…lots of hard work ahead…
