I leave Jerusalem early tomorrow morning to return to a large and now overdue pile of marking. (I made the decision to extend my stay in Israel before the winter semester began in the naive expectation that I could get everything done before I left.) However, the whole trip including this extra week on my own has been fantastic.
In the midst of my regular academic duties, a couple writing deadlines, and time with family, I hope to find time this summer to blog through the experience. You can expect a travelogue of sorts, with biblical studies-related observations, reflections on the current political situation, and lots of pictures.
