Feb 25

Today I had one of the coolest days out here yet. We went to Hesekia's tunnels which are underground tunnels they used in times before Christ to bring water into the city without getting attacked, since the water was outside the city. We were waiste deep in the water in a pitch black cave with flashlights. The day was very eventful after that and we went to a bunch of churches and met a ton of cool people along the way. The coolest thing was meeting this Armenian guy that was just going to show me the view from his house of the Old City and it turned out that he took four of us into his house and talked with us for a while and invited us to come any weekend and have a BBQ and that he would introduce us to his neighbors and that we could hang out with all the people there. I had never really been in a native's house like that before and thought that was such a cool thing. I have his number and a lot of people here really want to do that. I thought it was cool because Shant (who is Armenian) has a family that always treated us like this guy did! So sweet.

The day was really just filled with the theme of awesome people and that's what made it one of the best days yet.
