The kiddo and I are getting ready for our first lengthy trip in quite some time. We'll meet up with lots of friends and family, and I predict an amazing trip--both for the stuff that we're planning to do and see, and because we'll get to see lots of friends and go to the wedding of one very good friend in particular. This guy was one of the first of Max's friends that I met when I took my first trip to Israel in 2002, and he's always been a great guy to have in my life as an honorary Israeli. Mazal tov to him and his bride!
And now for your enjoyment, here is an old blog post from my December 2006 trip to Israel.
