For the past 12 days, I have been in Israel, visiting dear, dear friends and traveling around the country in a beat-up Hyundai Getz with my mother. My flight touched down at 5 AM this morning and I’m in that wild awake-overtired phase. My body thinks it is 7 PM, my lips are weirdly chapped (too much mango!), and I’m tan, grungy, and about to take a nap.
I’m still thinking and processing the trip. It was an adventure; Mom and I saw a lot in a few days and I got to spend some quality time with friends. Really, it was exactly what I had hoped for.
