Off we go! I took the photo above near the gate in Indianapolis, but did not have time to post it before we left. We have arrived at JFK airport and made our way to the gate where our departure to Tel Aviv should be. We are so early that it is not listed yet – we have another 3 1/2 hours before the flight is scheduled to leave, so the students have gone to find food and wander around stores.
We have one more student due to catch up with us here at JFK, and another flying straight to Tel Aviv separately. And so expect future photos to have increasing numbers of people in them!
