Israel Update #3 — with Picture Goodness!



Hope you are all enjoying the few updates from Israel.  Today we drove up to the Syrian / Lebanese border, a place called Mt Ben Tal.  There is a great view of Mt Hermon, and a nice coffee shop (I had Turkish coffee and some cherries bought from a Druze man outside the store).  We visited Gamla, Banias, and tel Dan, then drove through Tiberias.  Tomorrow we go through the “Jesus sites” in Galilee.

It is very hot and humid right now in Israel, and there is a haze in the air. Sadly, this has reduced our views of the valleys in some cases, although we could still see snow on Mt Hermon.

I think I will get one more update in before heading back to Jerusalem.  Internet has yet to come to the Rosary guest house.
