A is for arrivals and archaeology at the airport

.
Applause for ABC Wednesday going into Round 9 today!
Mrs. Nesbitt and her meme team deserve straight A's.

And I was at the airport today to await the arrival of two dear relatives who are moving back to Israel after many years in America.
Ahalan!
.
Archaeology, even at the airport!
This big mosaic carpet hangs on a wall in Terminal 3.

Appropriately, it is a mosaic that was discovered in Lod.
Ben-Gurion International Airport was formerly called Lod Airport because it is near the town of Lod.

Airports are becoming a hub of artifacts and art galleries. I sometimes wish I was travelling so that I could get to see some of the works that are displayed at our airport.

I love learning about different locations. Imagine that—archaeology at the airport. I wonder how many other airports —or if any other airports—have such an exhibit.

The perfect A for you. I've been on a couple of digs in England and must say I enjoy playing in the dirt.

Israel must be covered in historical objects. How interesting is your archaeology! I wish your relatives a happy time in Israel.
Shalom!
