So I was headed to Jerusalem and I found a girl through couch surfing who was studying Hebrew at the University. I went to her apartment and met a few of her roommates. After some short conversation I mentioned a was from Bend Oregon and a guy from the other room comes in and says my sister is from Bend. Turns out this guy Brett is the brother of my friend Beth in Bend(Beth Marino and her husband Chris Wolsko, I have spun fire with Beth). Just before I left Bend I was talking with Beth and Chris at Mikes block party, they were telling me that I needed to hook up with Beths Brother while I was in Isreal,I never got his contact info, but turns out it was meant to happen anyway. Ive been hanging out with Brett the last few days, and we went up to the Sea of Galilee over the weekend for a Couchsurfing Party on a private beach. I met about 60 travelers and people from all over Israel. Now have connection with people and couches to sleep on just about anywhere I want to go in Israel. It was a great gatehring there were all different kinds of languages happening the whole weekend and people trying to walk on the water. Now you might not here from me for a little while I will be going into the Negev Desert to a Rainbow gathering over the next week or two.

Blessings from The Land,

The Things You Learn in Jerusalem

Turns out Jesus had a son? I got a tour from a Jewish dude, who happens to believe in Jesus, I got blessed by a guy with some sweet locks of hair coming out only the sides of his head, oh yeah and I got searched and yelled at by a a Arab Palestinian, then I stayed up until 7:00am and got pizza and beer for breakfast with some cool Israeli students who are "traditional" not religious. On top of all that I think this Israeli solider with a huge automatic rifle strapped to her back was hitting on me yesterday, a little intimidating yet, still pretty hot.

Tel Aviv Night life on the Beach

Tel-Aviv Nightlife

So I had a change of plans I think that I am going to go to Jerusalem instead of going North. I am going to meet up with some folks that my friend Chinua hooked me up with, then I am going with them to an Israeli Rainbow Gathering in the Negev area.

Thanks for the Comments its great to hear back from you guys.

I'm In

ahlan wa sahlan( I think that means hello)

I'm in the country. I was pretty nervous when I was leaving New York because they took me to a private room and questioned me several times and put me through extra searches and questioning because my passport doesn't look like me and its a bit moldy, and I have a one way ticket leavin the country with a different airline. So I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to get past customs when I got to Israel. My friend Zohar was going to pick me up from the airport and it turns out I was pleasantly greeted at the gate before I even got to customs by one of the head security workers at the airport Yehude who also happens to be Zohar's father, he escorted me through a special gate flashing people his I.D. card right past customs no questioned asked. All I had to do was show my paaspot to one women who hardly even looked at it and gave me a stamp.

Anyway all is well and I'll be heading up north prpbaly tommorrow to the Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee,
