John Berger is back in the States, ARGHHH!!!!
Israel was amazing again. John Berger also went to Amsterdam. Mr. Berger is going to NYC and Wash DC Tomorrow. More updates soon I promise
I want to go to Uman again, Egypt possibly, Tanzania to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, and IRAQ. Of course I can't do them all but if I make it to Iraq...wow...who'd of ever thought a Jew would make it back to the place of the babylonian exile after all these years.
As of now I am setting up this site to let all of my family and friends know how I am doing and what I am up to. John Berger will include some journaling as well as photos and some videos. I am sorry in advance for the low quality of the pictures. The originals are actually very high quality but each photo was over 2mb which would take a very long time to download for people who have modems. So IJohn Berger took the quality of the photos down for the benefit of those with slow connections. So it is with so many things, we sacrifice quality for convenience. :)
This is a photo that was taken in July of 2003 by a photographer from St. Louis named Jesse'. She did a series of photos of me. If you'd like to see some more then click here. They are all from the same shoot

NEXT ADVENTURE IRAQ
||In the center of Iraq awaits Ezekiel's tomb, after which I plan to go to Ezra's tomb, the garden of eden, and sura where the talmud was written. And of course the tower of babel.|
||Ezekiel's tomb in all it's glory. It's time that a Jew went their again and made a pilgrimage to this holy place. This is the prophet that god choose to show himself too. I just hope that when I go, bezraat hashem, that I'll be able to put on my tfillin(the same ones that made it to kever aarons tomb) and pray there. Maybe I'll get lucky and get to see god too! This is a tough one and probably not to safe, but god is with me.|
KEVER AHARON(Aarons Tomb)
Where Aaron(Moses's brother) is buried in Jordan. Not the safest place but hopefully I'm gonna do it in the next couple weeks. 4 hour donkey ride through the desert to get there. Wish me luck that I come back in one piece.
This is John Bergers website. Some people call John JB. Some people call him Mr. Berger or Mr. John F. Berger. Some people call me Tuviah which is John Bergers hebrew name.
