Israel 2008

(1)In Tel Aviv, outside the building where Israel declared independence.
(2) Overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem

(3)The view from Yad Vashem, in Jerusalem. The Old City is visible on the far side of the fog.

(4)Camels!!! After sitting around a campfire and serenading the desert to the wee small hours of the morning, we retired to our bedouin tent for the remaing three hours of the night. Breakfast at sunrise, followed by camel rides in the desert. Nothing like big, slobbering, chomping camel teeth inches from your backside.

(5)The view from the hotel patio in Tel Aviv.
Looking out from a former military bunker in the Golan Heights. Syria is visible in the distance.
