NCX Meeting in Jerusalem and Visit to Technion in Haifa

I was lucky to travel to Israel to visit my good friend Izhak Kehat in Haifa and give a talk at Technion.  The highlight of the trip was the personal tour by Izhak to various religious landmarks in the North of Israel.  From there it was onto Jerusalem for the 7th International Conference on Sodium Calcium Exchange thanks to a lecture invite from our friend and collaborator, Israel Sekler. Beyond the great science presented at this meeting, I had the intense experience of spending significant time touring Jerusalem.
