Week 10 of my Study Abroad Experience

Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a great week. I would like to start off this week’s blog post by discussing one of my favorite things about the culture in Israel. I truly appreciate the generosity of the people that I have met here. I cannot count the number of times I have been invited by people I have met from across the country to come and meet their families and have coffee with them. In November, I was invited by some friends I made in Haifa to come to Nazareth with them for the day. They gave me a personal tour of their hometown. We went to the Church of the Annunciation, a Shawarma restaurant and a coffee shop. At the coffee shop, I tried an Arabian sweet called Konafeh for the first time and it was delicious. I look forward to having more experiences like this and the next city I want to visit is Beer Sheba located in Southern Israel. One of my local friends here invited me to come and stay the weekend with her family to experience where she grew up. I also traveled to Tel Aviv last weekend with some of my friends from the international school and we relaxed on the beach because we were exhausted from our midterms that week. I am looking forward to the upcoming break in between my two semesters because I have several plans to travel. I plan on visiting Cyprus, Malta, Morocco, Paris, South Africa and Budapest. I was surprised by how cheap these flights were and I figured that this would be the best time for me to experiences these places. I would like to thank everyone for reading this week.
