OK school kids... I know we were supposed to take the newly voted on school mascot with us--a deer with some really big antlers--but I'm sorry to say that he missed his flight and a panda had to take his place. I hope you won't be too upset because this panda is a really nice one and he is hoping you will want to follow his adventures to Israel.
His first day of flying started out like this:
"Here I am, all snuggled into my mylar blanket. They gave it to us to keep warm. It wasn't very snuggly at all!"
"This is the pillow and blanket they gave us to stay overnight in the airport. The blanket was folded up into that tiny ziploc bag. Crazy, huh?"
"These are some of my roommates for the night."
"We are leaving in a few hours for Israel. I will tell you all about it as I travel. "
