category #2 travel
Maybe this is the time to return to my blogs about my trip to Israel. In a couple of weeks, we'll be into Advent, the time to prepare for the celebration of the birth of Jesus. We aren't quite there yet, so I don't want to steal all the Advent material in this advent to Advent. Anyway, I'll just point out that one of the first places we visited, right after Hebron, was Bethlehem. It is a sad place, surrounded by big ugly walls, isolating the Palestinians from the rest of Israel. We even had to show our passports to go from Israel to Palestine. I'll post the pictures of the wall here, and save the religious pictures of Bethlehem for later.
