I am at the airport in Tel Aviv munching a goat cheese sandwich and waiting for the airline desk to open. Grady and I are catching a direct late-night flight to the U.S. and should arrive to our respective homes Saturday afternoon.
I will continue to post more details about the land of Israel and the excavation when I return home, so please feel free to continue visiting this blog.
We receive other visitors to our site besides archaeologists and government ministers. Here is a group of future excavators that visited a couple of days ago. One of them asked in English, “What are you find-ing?” After the explanation, he replied, “Thanks, guys.”
