Welcome Party

Sitting in Ben-Gurion Airport, waiting for another member of our group to arrive. The area where people leave customs is quite remarkable. Because almost all trips to Israel have aspects of both pilgrimage and homecoming, there is much fanfare about arrivals. Cheering, balloons, flowers, huge crowds - you see it all. Sure, it happens at every airport, but nothing like to this extent.
