Haifa,9port of Nazareth) Israel

As you can see the weather is still beautiful, sunny and in the mid 70’s

Today we took a tour of Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee about an hours drive, we were not given headsets for this tour so it was very hard to hear our guide, so many of the sites I did not understand the full meaning  which took away from the experience.

We were suppose to leave Haifa today but due to some maintenance issues, the emergency generator,  we will now overnight here and leave tomorrow at around noon. This now allows us some time to walk around Haifa see the Baha’I gardens which are stunning,  and walk around the German colony.

back to Turkey tomorrow.

Stay tuned
