The blog has been sparse lately, but that’s because a lot has changed. Despite a job offer in Tel Aviv, I decided (last-minute) that it was best to come back to Boston. The last few weeks were spent wrapping things up in Israel, saying goodbye to friends, and getting things sorted for my return.
I have lots of photos to post from our final trip and closing ceremonies, but in the meantime, here is a video I put together about my two days trapped in New York’s JFK airport thanks to a blizzard.
My good friend Charlotte (Charly) came to visit last week. It was her first time in Israel but it was only for 9 days, so we had a lot of things to see and not a lot of time to do it. We traveled from all the way up in the Golan Heights, to all the way down to Makhtesh Ramon, and everywhere in between. But first, we started in Tel Aviv.
I got to explore the Negev last weekend with our program. From nearly falling off cliffs to breaking my phone to dancing on tanks to seeing a dead guy to eating way too spicy peppers, it was quite a 3 days.

Some photos from our hike up Har Carmel, near Haifa. It was a fun day that involved a Druze village, hardstyle, amazing falafel, and a really sketchy Sheirut ride. And we did it in shorts and t-shirts on December 5th.
