Our Little Mini Trip

Ok, so we've been on a trip for the past few days, and we went to a few places.  First, we went to the desert, called the Negev and rode camels.  On the way there we stopped at a tank museum.

 Next, we went to a kibbutz which is a place where people live and it is like a mini-town.  The first thing we did was settle in and we had a great Shabbat dinner which was very big.  I ate chicken schnitzel, also meaning breaded chicken.  The next morning we went to Shabbat services which is a place where Jews pray.  We met some very nice people that my dad and mom knew.  They were from Cranston, Rhode Island.  Then we went back to the kibbutz and we had another BIG meal except it was lunch and the people who were were staying with invited their whole extended family and there were about 14 people there.  In the afternoon we just hung around and in the night we did a special holiday called Lag B'Omer.  We made bow and arrows out of sticks that were lying on the ground.  And there was a huge fire and they put a huge block of wood on there and it got even bigger.  Then I played soccer with some Israelis who were only six and they were better than me.  Israeli talent, I guess!
The next day we left the kibbutz and went to Tel Aviv.  And then we went to some museums which were very fun but were sad too.  The first one was the IDF Museum.  It had tanks and other cool army stuff.  The IDF is Israeli Defense Forces.  Then we went to the Yitzchak Rabin Museum.  He was a famous prime minister and he made peace in Israel.  We had these little headphones and a tour guide and it was translated into English.  Then we went home.
