Many of our Get It Straight Orthodontics patients know that Dr. Neil lectures outside of the office and had plans to travel to Israel this holiday season. Over the next few weeks, Dr. Neil has decided to take our office along and share some family memories, on what he feels will be a most exciting and memorable trip. Enjoy!
The trip begins
My family and I traveled to Israel yesterday. I have a few days prior to my teaching days so we are on tour seeing what makes Israel such a unique and special place. Whether you are religious or not, there is a bit of history on every rock that is turned here.
Today, we visited the Western Wall and left blessings for those that we love. We toured the old City of Jerusalem and walked the Via Dolorosa, the path of agony that Jesus took prior to his death. This city is very interesting, no matter what religious background you come from. Following that we toured the local market, which was quite fun and chaotic. Since today is the beginning of the Sabbath, everything stops at 3 PM, which is fine because the time is 8 hours ahead and my family is still adjusting. I hope everyone, both patients and employees back at Get It Straight, enjoy the photos, as much as we did taking them. No Orthodontics was done today, but the day was still a personal milestone nonetheless.
