It was a momentous time, the first time we woke up in the Ramada, our spirits were high. As we finished a delicious breakfast we gathered in the lobby to be briefed on the day ahead. The day began and we were to travel to Tel Aviv. The first activity of the day was a talk inside the building where the state was declared independent. The fascinating story of the declaration was retold in the room where it took place.
The next stop was the Palmach museum. It was very interactive and was a wonderful way to learn about the bravery of the freedom fighters.
To end a great second day, we visited Rabin square for photos and to learn about the ideological split and the way the murder of a Prime Minister shook the country.
