Ascend to Zion

I’m so excited. Wait, that’s an understatement. Halfway to Tel Aviv, we passed over Alma-Ata. I saw a sunset like I’ve never seen before (this is, after all, my first trip outside my country). I cried for joy. Six more hours and I would actually be in Israel! The first one in the Acebron clan to actually set foot on the land promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
