Great way to see something of the Real ISRAEL Faces., places, music, people etc'...

Shalom and Welcome to Israel, my Home.
Small and beautiful country, gathering all religions and cultures, A country which since its creation has never rested and always was under struggles and fights always had to defend it self and fight for its existence.
A country which not only gathers different religion but also different cultures, from all over the world. Country of new and old, Country of beautiful green valleys and mountains and on the other side a beautiful desert. country of beautiful beaches, Interesting History, wonderful Nightlife, great variety of food (influence af many cultures) Wonderful climate and warm people.

And to you who plan to visit here, Wishing you a great time !
One more thing, As you know there are many problems in our area, but don't let that change your plans, there are no wars in the streets (as sometimes that is what people think ), and when some areas are not safe the authorities will warn before and wont let you in anyway.

    Hi Sharon - how are you? Still working in Tel Aviv? Jordan sounds great and I look forward to seeing your Jordanian photos. I have only got as far as the airport in Jordan - on my way to Thailand some years ago. Take care.

    Your pics are gorgeous! I want to thank you, I've not been to Israel but it's helped my mother-in-law show me places they've visited. Most recently, Israeli Independence Day in the Bahai Gardens. She has sent me here more than once and I thank you!
