Understanding Israel's Rich and Diverse History

February 14, 2016

 

 

Today, we had free time with our host families for most of the day. We all did different things for the day, but I visited the ancient City of Acre (or Akko). With the Enbal's, we arrived in the mid-morning and wandered throughout the streets and local market, with a combination of Arab and Jewish merchants. The waterfront gave us an amazing view of the Bay of Haifa, allowing us to see Haifa from afar. We then took a tour of the buried city founded by crusaders hundreds of years ago. It is still being excavated but much of it can be seen today. It gave me a great understanding of Israel's rich and diverse history. We returned to the Enbal's home for dinner and rest, and left for Romi's house for a party later in the evening. After a few hours of chatting, eating, dancing, and singing, we were all exhausted and returned home to await tomorrow.
