Today we visited the crusader city of Acre, lunching on falafel, and then went to Nazareth, where we took in the beauty of the Church of the Annunciation.  Once again I provided explanations of the Christian concepts of the intervention of the Son of God in human history.  This trip is proving to be a significant moment for people of Springfield to come to a deeper appreciation of Christianity.

This evening I will be dining somewhere in the city of Haifa.

The trip is almost at an end.  Tomorrow we will lay down our heads in Tel Aviv, then Thursday we have a full day planned before we reach the airport at 8:00 pm.

I continue to be amazed by the fact that we are experiencing high temperatures (97F is today's high in many spots in northern Israel) but the humidity is low so I am not aware of how hot it is.  I keep drinking water, and our tour guide keeps pointing out the restrooms.
