We started the day off by picking up six IDF soldiers who will stay with us for the rest of the trip: Shelly, Ran, Yifat, Mikey, Tomar, and Nadav. After that, we went to a building owned by the Azrieli corporation (which is now run by a Swarthmore alumna) and got the chance to go on the roof of the 49-story building and see a beautiful view of Tel Aviv. After that, we went and did officially-led ice breakers with the IDF soldiers, before going out near the old port to find our lunches. After that, we went on a walking tour of Jaffa’s old port and got beautiful views and learned fascinating history. We returned to our hotel and had dinner, before a large amount of the group went out for a fun night on the town, while the rest of us stayed in and rested after our busy day.
