Was really curious about Israel.
First day Gali, a great friend of Rottem showed me arround in Tel Aviv, was a great day except the horrible heat (41 degrees).
Second day we went along the coast in direction Haifa. Made a stop in Zichron, a lovely small city with many art shop.
Third day we went to Jerusalem and made a stop in lovely En Karem. Then visited pituresque Town of Jerusalem and the market and - of course the Western Wall
Fourth day was the best day - PERFECT. Early in the morning we went to Dead See and to Nature Reserve EN GEDI, one of the best places I have ever seen. We saw Vulture, eagle, hydrax, ibex, bee-eater and a lot more animals, had a bath in natural bath-tubs, had a shower under waterfalls and there were nearly no tourists. Important: take a lot to drink with you...! Then we swam in Dead See, amazing, it is really impossible to sink.
Fifth day I went to Yad Vashem, a place of remembrance. Important for me to see, but could not stay longer than 2 hours. After that I went I Old Town again and to mountain of Olives from where I had a great view on Old City of Jerusalem.
Sixth day: On the airport I was interrogated cause of a stamp of UNITED ARAB EMIRATES. "What did you do there....was it neccecary to go there....do you know people there....will you go there again....UFF".
A really great trip....thank you Rottem again for your hospitality and for everything and thanks Gali for the great day in Tel Aviv! Hope to see you again soon!
