After the performances in Israel, the dancers had some time to site see and enjoy Israel. A group of dancers and staff visited Nazareth, the Jordan River, and the Sea of Galilee on Friday. We started off in Nazareth which is the early childhood home of Jesus with a ton of shrines commemorating biblical events. We were a bit lost when we arrived, but while we were trying to figure out our way, we stumbled on a very nice gentleman who spoke English and asked if we needed help. We soon found out that he was a retired tour guide for the city of Nazareth and he said to follow him and toured us around for about an hour. Without him, we would not have gotten to see some of the most interesting places in the area. He was such a kind soul and we thank him so much for showing us such a great time in Nazareth out of the goodness of his heart.
After our visit to the local spice mill, our guide walked us around to some of the holy sites in the are.
