How exciting. I have checked in with the Sar El group leader and i was paid my first compliment.. You are very organized. I had stapled my papers together. If that is all that it takes, I’m good. I was concerned that I would be the only one at the airport with a military green T shirt that said Volunteer in Hebrew. I went up to the first green shirt that I saw and when I looked around, there were plenty of us . That was a relief. I won’t say where I have been assigned, because I haven’t been told that I could. I am now at my base, along with 29 volunteers, mostly women. Men, first floor, women, second. They  put two groups together so we are larger than usual. Because of that, I am in a 4 bed room. No problem. Uniforms are a riot. Sam certainly made the pants too big, and the shirts and the jacket and the belts. Because a friend told me to bring safety pins and a belt, I am set. Dinner at 6. Then more instructions and hopefully, bedtime. NOTE: No internet until I am back in Jerusalem

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
