They say the lights being off is so that they can see out, not that the pirates can see us. See you in Dubai, United Arab ...
... and most importantly, air conditioning. It was my favorite accommodation in Israel by far, for only $40/night.
Unlike many other places in Israel, secular Eilat doesn’t really play by Shabbat rules. Although I debated the necessity of making a side trip to Jordan, when I realized that I could do it during the Sabbath, and reminded myself that I may never be as close to it again, I asked David to help me organize a jaunt to the world-renown ancient city of ...
