Carine Warsawski ’07 and Rachel Warner ’08 meet up atop Masada
“You don’t have to look hard to spot a Batesie halfway around the world,” says Carine Warsawski ’07. “We naturally gravitate.”
In this photo, the gravitational locus is Masada, the ancient desert fortress overlooking the Dead Sea, where Warsawski and Rachel Warner ’08 happened upon each other.
In more ways than one, it was a “picture perfect moment,” Warsawski says, She was traveling with Authentic Israel, an Israel travel program provider for which she serves as director of marketing. The picture frame was for taking photos of trip participants against various backdrops, so potential clients “can look at them and say, ‘Yeah! I can picture myself’” in Israel.
Warner, a fundraiser for Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, was traveling in country. “It was just one of those ‘wherever you go, you’ll always find a Batesie’ moments,” Warsawski says.
