Another Beautiful Place

Last month, my team and I took a little trip to the state south of us for a little adventure and retreat. We saw some cool historical sites, even a scroll written in Hebrew (probably some of the Old Testament) that had been brought over by Jews that lived in the state long ago. It was so cool, but unfortunately, I could not take a picture of it. We also went to an old, old synagogue and even met a sweet lady whose family had been there forever! She said that, currently, only six Jewish families with 11 members remain there because most have gone back to Israel. How neat!

The best part about the trip was spending 24 hours on a houseboat on the backwaters. It was so beautiful, peaceful and fun. We ate delicious seafood, played games, fished and some even ventured to swim in the murky water (not me!). Here are few pictures.
