I ended up go to Israel three times in 2009 all to volunteer in the army for 1 week stints. When the war broke out the first week in January, I made my plans right way and was on the plane within four days.The first pictures here were taken the day before my army work as my good friend in Israel is part of the Israeli motorcycle club and takes me on trips when I go to Israel. The second batch of pictures were taken at the Lebanese border which was very interesting. On top of the hill where I was working, I could actually look into Lebanon and hear the call for prayers from the mosques.
