Mayanot Journey with Elli Rosenthal – Plane Ride
The plane ride to Israel was an interesting one. The plane was quite large, especially compared to the one that I took yesterday. The seventeen total passengers yesterday compared to the few hundred. In the afternoon we noticed a group of Israeli men congregated in the middle of the plane. At first we thought they were there talking with each other and then later figured out they were doing their afternoon prayers.
The plane ride wasn’t too bad unfortunately I only slept for twenty minutes, which is a change from my usual sleep through the whole plane flight.
One thing that I have found to be interesting is the Hebrew phrases and words that have been coming back to memory. I am not someone who is too good at languages, but my previous studies are coming back slowly. I hope this summer my Hebrew comes back and expands as I have always wanted to be fluent in Hebrew.
Following eating breakfast at whatever hour it is looking out the window was a breathtaking experience. The sun rising, each color defined with each colour from the rainbow represented.
