The past few weeks have been some of the most amazing, heart pounding kick ass weeks ever. After being in Jerusalem during a rocket attack, and being sent into a hideout by IDF Soldiers (where they mixed men & women together for safety, I knew shit was hitting the fan and this was the real deal. (At the Kotel "Whaling Wall", Men & Women always pray separately as tradition.) The gunfire which was celebration time for the Palestinians could be heard from the West Bank as we listened from our balcony.. Crazy times!
If that wasn't enough.. after arriving in Tel-Aviv about 1 week later, a bus got blown up only a few blocks from the apartment that my brother and I rented out. Thankfully nobody was killed in the bus bombing (picture below) but there were severe injuries reported. This was only our first day arriving in Tel-Aviv. After all of the chaos, a long awaited "cease-fire" was finally announced on TV and it's been quiet ever since. Some say that the cease-fire is just "Reload Time" but who knows? Either way, Israel is and will always be one of my favorite places on earth.
Today I'm heading out to Amsterdam ;) with a two hour lay-over in Geneva. I have never been to Amsterdam before so I'm definitely looking forward to the craziness! The Networking, connections and meeting new people has been unreal.
As I write this blog update on an EasyJet flight, we are about to land in Geneva..
