We reached our hotel, and on the way in the bus the tour guide shared a bit about practical considerations and logistics, what we will be doing tomorrow, and so on. At the hotel we had time to freshen up before eating a buffet dinner with food that was for the most part not too exotic and not too hard to identify.
Tomorrow we will visit Caesarea Maritimia, an important historic city with evidence of the way different cultures have intersected in and left their mark upon this region. Tomorrow night we will be in Haifa. We should be able to post on the blog again then. Hopefully when we have free wi-fi access at some point, there will be some posts from individual students about aspects of their experience on the course blog.
