Nazareth to Tel Aviv, Israel, January 9, 2023
There were 5 of us in the room - 3 young American medical students who are doing a month long internship in Nazareth and planning to stay at the hostel. That would gross me out.

He had a friend on and when he wasn’t talking to me, he was talking to his friend. What a contrast to the yip yo I had getting to Nazareth. If he could have, I think he’d have pushed me off at my stop to get me off faster.
