A busy day today. We headed for Jerash for a tour and it was overcast but no rain at that spot then we headed north to the Sea of Galilee and a high fortification overlooking the Golan heights and Sea of Galilee. But it was raining hard and so we ran up to the restaurant and then ran down. We met a girl from Norway who sold her apartment and was on her way around the world. It was her 11th month of 12. She was trying to keep warm by the fire. It was really cold up north today.
Then we drove to Pella which is an archaeology site that the Finish are going to be excavating tomorrow for 6 weeks. It has some excavated middle bronze stone we wanted to show the students so they would know what they looked like. They are really, really big. The late iron on the top are much smaller and easy to move. Glad it’s not the other way around.
When we got back to the hotel it was pouring. While we were having supper they told us that we should go out as there was an emergency. Well we all ran outside and stood under the porch and it was the loudest thunder and lightening that I have ever heard. Well it was a false alarm so I was wet for the third time. I’m going to get into the shower just to get dry.
It is going to be raining here for the next two days so we will not be digging tomorrow but reading pottery and doing some training.
