Sunday, 30 May 2010

I didn't want to spoil the surprise so let me tell you that yesterday I celebrated my 66 years and 8 months birthday. That makes me 2/3 of a century old! I bought enough cake for our group at Saturday night dinner.

Sunday is an off-day, but excursions are planned. Today we went to the Decapolis city of Hippos. There were (only approximately) 10 of these Greco-Roman cities mostly on the east side of the Jordan. (And, hey, I've only been to 5 of them.)

Hippos is on a high plateau on the east side of the Sea of Galilee. It has a great view looking west over the water.

Oh yes, here's a picture on Lindsay on the bus. Her parents read the blog faithfully.
