I sleep at least seven hours on this 11 hour flight. That is fortunate since I will work as soon as I get off this flight This trip gave me so much more than I expected. I feel we created a very strong bond between us. I’m very grateful we were in the hands of very special madrighas in Selena and Stacey. This trip gave me a lot of spiritual growth in that it deepened my commitment to the Jewish religion. I must have been Jewish in a previous life! It gave me an additional layer of lightness of being In that I can deal with anything when I see the Israelis singing and dancing in the streets with such violence surrounding them. In so many ways I feel changed- I’ll do everything to make sure it sticks. Traveling always enhances your life and gives you a window into lives and values of other people but this trip was special. I just feel incredibly elated to have been a participant!
