Enjoyed the Tapas bar & wine. A fine selection wines to taste. Excellent atmosphere. Perfect service and just 50$ per head. Very good way to spend an evening after a hard day's work!

Finally we met up with our Christian Palestinian guide, Samir, and followed the Jericho road into Israel. Our fellow traveler Becky had "Jerusalem" queued up to play as we came out of a tunnel and got our first glimpse of the city. The sunset was just lighting up the gold dome of the Al-Aqsa mosque on the temple mount - a sight I'll never forget. I pinched myself several times to make sure I ...
