Israeli traded sand for snow, hopeful for democracy in Egypt

morris arboretum snow visitors

Along the cleared paths of the Morris Arboretum, visitors enjoy a snowy winter wonderland. Jacob and Sarah Pinto come frequently to the arboretum with their sons Shachar (right) and Yishai, to  experience the trees or an outdoor concert.

Jacob, a native Israeli, says of his family's relocation here two years ago that they’ve traded sand for snow. He says it does snow in Israel but only in the Golan Heights and only for a couple of weeks each year.

When asked about the situation in Egypt, he expressed hope that the country, Israel's neighbor and enemy-turned friend, will have a real democracy.
