Day one was the main travel day. The plane ride to Tel Aviv from JFK was the most brutal ten hours ever. We were in the very back of the plane by all the bathrooms. Plus we had a billion children sitting behind us and all of them cried the entire way – BRUTAL! On top of that we had a two hour delay due to technical difficulties. We arrived in Tel Aviv behind schedule so we had to rush to the bus and head straight to the Netanga Academic College. On the way we passed Joppa, thats where Jonah and the whale occurred. So at the college we saw the Orson Hyde memorial Garden where all the trees are planted in remembrance for every prophet of the LDS church. After we headed straight to our hotel. I went swimming in the Mediterranean sea!! I was so surprised by how warm the sea water was. I felt a little nervous swimming in the dark but my family was swimming too. It was a blast!
