Shalom chaverim! I made it, too, to the lovely Jerusalem. After a galus and startling sheirut ride from the airport, I am now relaxing and studying my map in Sarah Lauing's beautiful apartment and thinking about the days ahead. I am just so happy and grateful to be here. I am looking forward to walking a ton and visiting museums and everything I can for the next couple of weeks.
Arriving was a thrill. Dafna wouldn't let me kiss the actual ground, so I mezuzah-kissed it.
