My group is getting settled in Haifa where we will base ourselves for the next two days to attend various Israeli missions in the Northern Galilee region. Tomorrow, I will talk about what I'm doing here and with whom I'm traveling.
Sands from the Sahara Desert have blown into the country causing visibility to be extremely limited everywhere we've been today. The scene above looks out to the Mediterrean, but you would never know it. Israel is very green at this time of year and flowers are blooming everywhere.
