Documenting the journey started on the El-Al flight O'Brien took, filming a video in the plane's bathroom trying to read the Hebrew writing on a garbage disposal bin and a hand lotion bottle.
Then, O'Brien filmed a live Facebook video Saturday for his three million followers. In the video—filmed at the old Port of Jaffa—he shares his first impressions of the country and Tel Aviv, commenting on the muscle-bound men in Speedos and beautiful women.
Conan then goes on to share culinary impressions from the Holy Land, saying he enjoyed shakshuka for breakfast and had a chance to drink Israeli beer Goldstar. He also tells of a Thai restaurant he was taken to. Despite initial disappointment at not being taken to a traditional Israeli eatery, O'Brien says it was the "best food" he'd ever had.
The late night TV personality also weighed in on the Israeli weather, complaining about the heat. He said he took to wearing a hat, but looked too much like an old woman, so he stopped.
O'Brien is expected to stay in Israel throughout the week, and will visit Jerusalem and Bethlehem after departing Tel Aviv.
