Our pilgrimage started out as all pilgrimages should…with difficulty. It snowed about a foot overnight in Chicago and our bus to take us to the airport broke down on the way to get us. It ended up taking an extra hour and a half to get us a new bus and we feared that we would miss our flight. However, traffic was good since everyone skipped work because of the snow. So, we made our flight and soon left O’Hare for Zurich. After much waiting, we were finally on our way to the Holy Land…but first a stop in Zurich, Switzerland.
