The flight was very long and I couldn't sleep!  I even took a selfie without selfie mode on my camera!  I watched Harry Potter 3 and Into the Woods on the plane.
When we got here I was a little bit nervous because I have never been to a different country before.  I wasn't nervous anymore when we got to overlook the old city of Jerusalem at the Tayelet.  The rest of the day we were mostly at the apartment.  That night we saw the Jerusalem Time Elevator, which is a movie about the history of Jerusalem with seats that move and make you feel like you are actually moving in the movie.  After that we had this really good dinner!

The next day we met the tour guide and went to see the City of David.  It was a really cool site and we got to walk through Hezekiah's Tunnel.  Hezekiah's tunnel is a tunnel that you walk through water and it was used back in the time of Kind Hezekiah to bring water to the city while they were being attacked by the Assyrians.  Ima and I, and our guide walked through the tunnel with water, while Abba, Avi, and Noam when through a dry tunnel.

Today was Shabbat and we went to shul and visited my parents' friend Alexis.  I had sent my Flat Stanley to her when I was in First Grade!

Overall, I have had fun this week and I will write more during the week.
