Hey People

               The Middle East is back at it again and it felt like time for me to go home on the next available plane.  The news reports show images of Israel bombing the Gaza strip and the reservists being called out for a possible ground strike.  Aside from the helicopters in the sky and the large number of Israeli soldiers around the bus station, there are no signs of war in Tel Aviv...just a bunch of tourists hanging out on the beach.

Yesterday I walked to the Air Canada office in Azrieli Center, a huge modern office/shopping tower complex.  I asked the lady at the desk if I could change my ticket to leave from Israel and hopefully make it home in the next few days.  She checked her computer and informed me that all the flights were booked right up to the 12th of January.  She tried a number of different options but things were not looking good for me.  I started contemplating perhaps going to Egypt for a few weeks and fly home from there when suddenly the lady told me she found me a flight home on New Year's Eve.  There was one seat left on the plane - it must have been waiting for me.  I am happy to report that my big adventure will be over on New Years Eve and I will be arriving at the Kamloops Airport at 11pm just in time to spend the last day of 2008 with my wonderful family and my rabbit Jack.

Hope to see you all soon
