Happy New Year
After a wonderful night celebrating New Year's in Israel, we ventured off to Mt. Arbel for our first major hike of the trip. Mt. Arbel sits on a rock canyon overlooking a Bedouin village and is filled with a lot of history. It was originally built by the Hasmonians, later to be occupied by the Romans until their empire fell and the Ottomans turned it into a military fortress.
Tomorrow we will be meeting our soldiers and spending the day and night Bedouin village learning about Bedouin culture. We will also go on a camel ride and eat a traditional family style meal on the floor of the Israeli desert. Stay tuned for more updates from Bus 1120!
