An off-hand remark during the phase of I’m-thinking-about-writing-a-book, was “If I really write this book, maybe I should go there.”

Bulldog husband took that remark and found a way.  Not with a tour of 15 buses and 600 people, but with 32 people at an archeological dig searching for the biblical Ai! 

 We took a break from digging and got a Palestinian guide to take us into the West Bank by taxi and to Gibeon/El Jib. 
We stood where the characters of Joshua Chapters 9 & 10 stood.  Except for the 21st Century evidence in the background, it was a trip back in time.  I wonder how old this olive tree is?
