Israel day 1

Day 1: started in the plane, got to Israel safely, got to the hotel in tel aviv, heard the game plan for the trip, and went scuba diving with Bob and Ann Meyer 

My notes:
Tour guide-Miki, Driver-Kamal



Tel Aviv-flat, modern, a lot of culture (1 million population)
Haifa-like Naples, mixed Jewish population
Jerusalem-mountainous, valleys, high orthodox jewish population
Jaffa-the beginning of Tel Aviv, from the tribe of Dan
Tel Aviv means Spring Hill in Hebrew
12:20 after checking in to hotel, went scuba diving with Bob and Ann Meyer. It was a struggle to get insurance worked out and then the waters were very wavy from the wind making it a workout and somewhat murky waters. But I got to see my first jellyfish!
6pm dinner as a group
