Hooray! I'm on my way!
The new plan worked! Today I flew from Atlanta to New York then on to Tel Aviv, Israel. It was a 11 hour flight, but seemed much shorter since I guess I was just so happy to be getting on my way. I learned several things today, one of which is Israeli defense forces do NOT care for US passport holders with an Afghan visa! (or maybe it was the beard) They held me for quite a while asking me over and over what my business is in Israel and then Afghanistan. Of course I politely explained that I am going to conduct Afghan Water Polo business to which they didn't believe for a second...... In their defense it really does sound a little far fetched, but we all knew that right? I've booked my onward flight to Dubai and since its literally half the price two days from now, I now have two days to kill in Israel.
