The excavation woke to the sounds of a triathlon going on just outside our hotel.
It was an early hotel breakfast this morning, always a treat, before the volunteers left for the 7:00 am bus trip to Jerusalem. Once there, they visited Hezekiah's Tunnel, the Israel Museum and a number of other sites. After the tour, some students stayed overnight in Jerusalem while many returned to Ashkelon.
Tomorrow is another day off and then Sunday is Seminar Day.
From excavation Thursday, baulk cutting in Grid 51.
