Travel Blogs from Jerusalem
... since it's Holy Week I'm not sure how much is going to be open. Apparently public transport shuts down so I doubt I'll get the chance to get to Tel Aviv, but I'll see what happens. The only disappointment so far is having my hopes of flushing toilet paper down the toilet completely dashed. Alas, the plumbing is still not up to par. The act of putting used paper in a waste basket is messing with my head. It's hard to undo 27 years of programming. ...
... street in Queens, with busy street life, and low quality goods displayed I windows and outside. The shopping became more classy as we neared center city. We stopped at Yoel Solomon street, a street of craft stores and bought a beautiful paper cut of a traditional
house blessing. We had to stop for ice cream even though it was about 50 degrees and we had to eat outside, but it was worth the shivering.

Until next time, Shalom!
... that go on for infinity.
There are so many more things to see here, like I said, I will return.
Since we spent the day here, which I was very grateful to have done, we decided that we will have to return another day to see Jerusalem. Beni took me on a "drive by" tour of the city and I was able to see the walls of the Old City before we made our way home to Daniela who had prepared a delicious dinner for us :-)
