Layover in Larnaca, Cyprus
We take a very long bus ride to the airport. After 1 hr of waiting in the waiting room we were informed that the reason we were delayed was we were waiting for the Holy Flame from jeruselum. Who would of guessed!!!!!!!!! So after about 20 minutes we are told we could go board the plane. So we get on and I am stuck next to two little kids who were for the most part quite. Then it came! The Holy Flame which was supposed to go to Cyprus there were 4 different lanterns that four different men carried (the Holy Light if you did not know is a light that is lit were jesus was born a greek orthodox priest lights one candle then lights all these different ones that get sent all over the world by midnight on the 18 of April.) My family was worried we would miss this big ceremony in jeruselum but we had it right in front of us on the plane. On the next plane ride I sat next two brothers one was my age and one was 10. They were jewish and the 7th grader was getting back from his bar-miztvah trip just like me.
