Late start and on to the Ayolon Institute

Coupled with the early bedtime, we had a nice morning with a late wakeup and time for a relaxed breakfast.

Some of us will be leaving for Eilat and Petra this afternoon but first we all went to the Ayolon institute – a secret munitions factory built before the war for independence. This amazing story of secrecy and daring is very interesting to be able to walk through personally.

First we watched a movie giving an overview of the story, and then it was time to go below and learn the secrets.



We learned all about the job of making and testing the bullets as well as keeping everything hidden from the ‘giraffes’ upstairs.
