See the bust down on the ground floor of this unusual building?
It is David Ben-Gurion, Israel's first prime minister.
Today I was there at Ben-Gurion College at Sde Boker, Ben-Gurion's kibbutz.
One Friday a month they offer great lectures and/or guided tours.
At the entrance to the kibbutz is Ben-Gurion's famous prophecy about how we would make the desert bloom and make the Negev a blessing to the State of Israel.
The green shrubbery overtaking the writing on the wall seems to prove that it really is happening.
