The Negev is special not because there are no other deserts in the world, but because it is one of the few deserts that you can find people fighting nature and making the desert greener. I don’t know any other nation in the world that has a vision to make deserts habitable places but if I could define pioneering it would be exactly this kind of doing. We had visit a Bedouin camp not far from Sde Boker and it was great, I think people really come together when they are in extreme places like the desert, living in one big tent and doing unique activities like riding camels. For the rest of my life I will have at least one thing in common with one of the buddies in the trip, we rode the same camel. I guess I should finish writing by now so I just say that I hope that everybody on the trip will have a good time and strengthen their Jewish Identity.
