This is it, the waiting is over! That applies to my loyal readers (hey, Mom!) and to myself. Because I made it to the Holy Land! We have yet to leave the Jerusalem Center, since our first field trip was postponed due to snow. "It's a hot and dry desert," they told me. "Don't bring any warm clothes," they said. Don't worry, this diva (barely) survived the freezing temps. Actually, my favorite moment thus far has been looking out at the snow-covered city as mosques broadcasted the Call to Prayer. The Center is located on the top of a hill, the perfect vantage point of the city below.

|You can't tell but it's snowing really hard!|

Tomorrow, we have church and then we're off to visit the Garden Tomb!
