Highlights include a lot of hiking, seeing all the touristy things, and a lecture titled "making love last." I can't wait. : )
I'll miss Kate a lot, but she's really excited for me to go see the things she saw. "Maybe Zach'll stop tuning out my Israel stories after ze goes," she might be thinking. We'll see.
Whatever the trip is like, it has to be better than falling on the icy subway stairs last week and getting all wet and gross. That was rotten. Israel ranges between 40-70 this time of year, it seems. That sounds pretty good to me!
