After quite stringent security we took a day tour to Jerusalem and Bethlehem. Ashdod is the third largest city in Israel and is about 50 miles from Jerusalem. There were 14 of us on the tour - a real interesting bunch from various parts of the world (and demands). Started at Mt Scopus with a nice view of the old city.

The 40 degree heat here sure beats the 'Great British Summer' at home. Now ideally I would have liked to have spent at least one of my trips heading into Jerusalem and the old town, but unfortunately there is still a raised threat level there. Such ...
