It is a rare Friday off for the volunteers who are, as I type this, winding their way up the hills into Jerusalem. Today they are on a tour led by Josh who will give one of his usual stellar introductions to the city and then unleash them for a weekend of exploring.
For much of the staff it is a work day as we catch up on computer database entry, prepare lectures and otherwise enjoy a more relaxed day of work. The hotel on weekends is always interesting, very good for people watching if nothing else, and is best survived by eating breakfast early and then hiding out in the room or a cafe somewhere else. Nevertheless, with planning much can be accomplished to set us up for the next week.
Some pictures to tide you over. These come to us courtesy of Grid 51.
