THE WALL BETWEEN PALESTINE AND ISRAEL

THE WALL BETWEEN PALESTINE AND ISRAEL

Jericho is the oldest known city. They uncovered the original walls thru excavation and continue to dig for more. If you are into history, Biblical or other, it is a great place to spend some time. As you head to Jericho you stop at the river Jordan to see where Jesus was baptized.

Palestine is beautiful! It was probably the best day of the entire trip. I really enjoyed Palestine. I knew very little about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and I still don’t know the full scope.

It should be mentioned that cooking on Friday night and staying in is optimal because it is Shabbat on Fridays and everything closes once the sun goes down. Especially in Jerusalem all restaurants close. The  Abraham hostel also provides a Shabbat dinner but we had done it the week before.

He arrives just before dinner and we decided to spend the evening in the Mahane Yehuda Market. This market is just a short walk from where we are staying and it is a great place to do a variety of things. This market is a must see in Jerusalem because in the day it is your regular food market.

Afterward we went to Ein Geidi which is a nature preserve and I checked out some of the waterfalls. This is also a bit hilly but not nearly as tough as Masada. If you want a beautiful hike but don’t want the excess that is Masada, Ein Geidi is a nice substitute.

There is a cable car for those who can’t hike. It doesn’t open until 9am.  The top of Masada is an old fortress that King Herod built so he could see his enemies coming. If you don’t need to see the sunrise then you can easily access it from the top.

The next day I took the same train and went just slightly south of Akkur to Haifa. This is a must see. The Ba’ Hai gardens are in the city way at the top of a mountain. The views and sites are worthy of a day trip.

Modern Tel Aviv is high rises, terrace restaurants and resort hotels. Not to say it doesn’t have its own charm, it certainly instills a feeling similar to Brooklyn for me but Jaffa is what you would imagine Israel to be like.

The beaches in Israel are incredible. Miles and miles of shore line run around Tel Aviv. Pristine white beaches with nice hotels and restaurants along the way. There is a beautiful promenade built along the length of the beach running to Old Jaffa.

No trip to Israel would be complete without traipsing thru a few markets. The cool thing is there are so many contrasts within each market. One night I went to Sarona Market. A sleek and trendy newer market.
