by Rafi Josselson  The morning was like any other morning. I woke up 15 minutes before our wake up time due to Gadi’s advice, I got changed in the bathroom and filled up my water bottles (we have had a lot of hot and humid days). I went down the elevator with Joli, I found Continue Reading »

Day 17 – Los Angeles

Posted on July 14, 2022

by Ethan Lenkin   When I first scanned our schedule for a day I wanted to chronicle, this day jumped out. The combination of city and programming was incredibly appealing, and it didn’t disappoint.
