As the bus pulled in at Terminal E of Logan Airport, most had not yet settled on the fact that they were on their way to the Holy Land. We stood in line to be interrogated and get bags checked, and then passed through security and sat down at the Vineyard Grille for dinner. Afterwards, we boarded our flight, and after rearranging out seats, we prepared for the ten hour flight. As the plane accelerated down the runway, we all looked at each other with excitement and felt the swooping sensation as the plane lifted into the air. On the flight, some dozed off, while some watched movies, and others conversed with their friends. Even as the plane touched down in Tel Aviv many hours later, most still could not fathom that they were in Israel. We then proceeded to exchange money and board the Puzzle Israel bus that would transport us through a traffic jam stretching from Tel Aviv to Haifa. As the bus pulled up to the curb, our Israeli friends crowded the door and we were reunited after a long five month wait. After some opening ceremonies, we were picked up by our host families and taken home for some rest and preparation for the next day.
