1: Mom tagged along....
2: London, England We had about 10 hours so we took the tube to Green Park and walked around Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, etc.
4: We found the BEST falafels in the Muslim Quarter; ate there 3 times. (The secret is the fries). | Sitting at Damascus Gate
9: We spent 9 nights at the Gloria Hotel in the Christian Quarter of Jerusalem, so we had a lot of time in Old Jerusalem. | We had lots of day trips from Jerusalem, then finally a 3-day trip where we stayed at the Ein Gev Holiday Resort Kibbutz.

14: Neil Kay
15: These two have been best buds since kindergarten.
16: The Dead Sea

20: We took a boat across the 'sea of Galilea. This is a group shot of the 15 of us from Calgary (minus Neil, who stayed back at the kibbutz with a sore throat).
21: The boat captain hung the Canadian and American flags, and played the national anthems. Only, our flag was upside down (until we pointed it out). | So much fun, swimming in the Sea of Galilea as the sun was setting. The beach was only metres from our cabin, at the Ein Gev Holiday Resort Kibbutz.
22: When Mom was just about to turn 17 she went to Israel on a trip through her high school (St. Mary's).
23: Nana and Aunty Debbie went along with her in 1980; 30 years later she she came along with me.
27: Mom's friend, Drina Drummond, came along. They roomed together; Neil and I roomed together. | The four of us always had the back of the bus, usually with Preston and Karen.
29: When Israeli fighter jets fly over Masada, they tilt their wings in salute to the Jews who perished here in ~73 AD, fighting for their freedom from the Romans.
31: There were soldiers everywhere we went in Israel; this group of them (outside the Jerusalem University College) was very friendly. They put a hat on Logan for the picture. | Rampart's Walk
33: Preston Pouteaux, pastor at the Lutheran Church of Our Saviour | Preston was really great with the 2 youngest dudes. | Trying to avoid the camera | One of our spectacular outdoor classrooms | "The boys" | Act natural, like there's no camera pointed at you....
