If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand wither...Ps.137,5

Three incredible weeks I experienced in Israel back in 1987. My friends and I stayed in the middle between Bethlehem and Jerusalem, and during these unforgettable days we had the opportunity to see various parts of the country from North to South by rental car.
I came to Israel for studying purposes, arrived at the airport in Tel Aviv just like another tourist, but found myself becoming a pilgrim after only a short time in this country...

    Great page! It seems like you memorized a lot even after such a long time since you've been there.

    Outstanding travelogues. Really enjoyed your pages because I know I'll never be able to see it myself. Too dangerous right now and has been for so long. Thanks so much for sharing your experiences.

    From hearing only the bad news about Israel, I tend to forget that there are nice peaceful places to see in the country.
