We Paint

Super Aryeo Bros (Aryeh Goldsmith, Ariel Beery, and Aaron Small)

Day 2 of our Leading Up North trip started at the crack of dawn with breakfast at the K'far Giladi Guest House (a surprisingly lavish hotel with all the amenities including an olympic size pool, sauna, table tennis, massage therapy, health and fitness spa, and conference rooms, not at all what I expected from a kibbutz), and then off to meet with the Mayor of Metula for an overview of the history of the beautiful northern village. After a bus tour of the area, we stopped by the community center to prepare for our first day of painting bomb shelters. Enrobed in our LUN-supplied Super Mario Bros-esque overalls, we split into small groups and headed out to do our community service.

Despite having been given stencils of simple designs, many LUN participants chose to paint outside the lines and decorate the walls with fanciful artwork of our own.

I adorned a small corner of the bomb shelter with ShaBot

But what about the children?! ROI120's Sydney Henning chats with the kids

The evening ended with a return to the community center, where we met with local parents and children for an evening of fun and talent showcase.

More from LUN soon!
