Today Bus H made their way to Albuquerque, NM. On the way to their destination the group stopped at the Cadillac Ranch, a stop on the side of the road with old Cadillac cars jutting up from the ground which people who pass by frequently sign or spray-paint. After adding their names and some of their own designs the group continued on to their destination. When they arrived, the Wheelniks had time to explore the shops and area of Old Town Albuquerque. In the evening they will head to the Hinkle Family Fun Center where they will ride go-carts and bumper cars and play mini golf and arcade games.

Group 8 left Eilat this morning and headed to the Alpaca Ranch, Ranch which is the only farm in the world where over 400 exotic alpacas and llamas are raised and where the entire process of growing and spinning their fur can be observed. Then they got to go rappelling down the side of a mountain; everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

Group 5 left Eilat this morning and headed to Kibbutz Ketura. Once there, they got the opportunity to learn about what it means to be on a kibbutz, took a tour of the area, learned about the various industries and initiatives that were formed on the kibbutz and more! They participated in a mock kibbutz trial game in order to gain a better understanding of how a kibbutz functions: the different dilemmas that arise and how to function as a unit, as a family. Then they had lunch followed by a nice dip in the pool in the kibbutz. In the evening their desert experience began: they cooperated, much like in a kibbutz, in order to make their own dinner, they went on an evening hike and had a pleasant night star gazing program.
