The first three days (Wednesday-Friday will have a high of 80 degrees! On Saturday, as we move from Galilee down to Bethlehem, the temperature also shifts down a bit- to a high of 70 and low 60's on Sunday. Monday, in Jerusalem, might see some afternoon rain and a high around 60 degrees, with the rest of our stay seeing a high in the mid-60's (and a low in the high 40's.)
That's QUITE a range! Layering is key, right?
I've had a few people ask me if the gifts for the Bethlehem community should be wrapped, and i would say not to do that. Airport security might well unwrap them. I'll try to bring a couple of large gift bags- we'll play it by ear.
PHONES- If you are bring your cell phone for checking email via wi-fi or skype/facetiming, but do not want to pay international rates for telephone calls, please remember to switch off your roaming, and turn to airplane mode as we are leaving Newark.
Looking forward to seeing you at RDU (please arrive 2 hours early)!
