We had a short week filled with adventures in Israel
Great view from the hotel
Although most of the trip was work for both of us, we had a nice mix of adventures, from walking on the beach
all the way from the hotel
to Old Jaffa
with the wishing bridge
where you put your hand on your zodiac sign to wish something
We had Saturday off, like most people in Israel
Old Jaffa is also an old port
Birds gathering at fishing boats
giving us a show
Sunset at Old Jaffa
Even though it is winter in Israel, it felt like a good summer evening to us
Great food in Israel! Here in an Arabic restaurant serving us a total of 32 dishes!
Lots of dogs in Tel Aviv – even a dog park in the middle of the city (Ulf and Fenris would have loved it there!)
We also had a day trip to Jerusalem, here the first view over the area, including the West bank barrier
Jerusalem, with all its old historic sites
We walked Via Dolorosa
We never knew that deer was that important in Christianity
With three hunters in the group we drew our own conclusions..
And she’s still being watched over ..
Narrow old streets – probably not meant for cars..
The wailing wall
Men and women are not allowed to wail together – women on the right side of the fence
Everywhere a mix of old history and new security
We visited the Dead Sea – this is where the DS scrolls were found
The best searched area in Israel
The Dead Sea, and Jordan on the other side
Beautiful skyline as we were heading back home to Norway
