Near Jerusalem

Only time for a short post today. We went to an interesting army base near Jerusalem, unit #401, tank corps. The tanks are Merkava 4. We did get to look inside, it seems a bit claustrophobic to me.  4 men at a time. When they are in combat, they stay inside, no toilets. No thanks. We had a good tour and ate lunch with the soldiers.

Then we had a tour of Maale Adummin, a city near Jerusalem and near the border. It is built on hills and winds around them.  You can see some of the city in the photos.

We also stopped at the 9/11 memorial near Jerusalem and then at the Elvis Cafe before heading back to Netanya.  That's all I have time for now. Going into a lecture in a few minutes. This weekend we head to Tzfat (Safed) to visit a friend
