We appear to have arrived at a workable compromise, involving our staying here for the next two years but first spending the summer in Israel. I talked to my boss today and she is ok with my telecommuting for two months; she will check with her boss tomorrow. So I came home tonight and started checking out fares.
And nearly fainted.
The best fares I can find would be eight thousand--yes, that's EIGHT THOUSAND--dollars for all of us. That's with Avtalyon in my lap.
I know fuel prices are through the roof. I know the dollar is in the toilet. But EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS?! Two thousand dollars per adult??
Does anyone have any better ideas than the usual online routes? Anyone?
