I was feeling a little funny when we arrived at the airport.  I was very much looking forward to this exciting 3 week trip with my girlfriend, but there was something wrong...it didn't take long to realize that I had red spots over my entire body!  Apparently, it was an allergic reaction to an antibiotic that I had been taking for about a week.  So here I am, boarding the plane and feeling really funny.  My girlfriend knew it was pretty bad when she saw I wasn't eating!  That problem went away after I simply stopped taking the medication...but I had the spots and loss of appetite for the entire time in Tel Aviv.  I still enjoyed the city!

We arrived during the Sabbath, and had to take a taxi into the city.  This cost us about $20, which wasn't too bad.  Once we arrived at the hostel, I called one of my good friends who lived in Tel Aviv.  She and her boyfriend then came out and showed us around the city.  They also took us to a great little restaurant tucked away in a quiet part of the city.  We had some great, authentic food.  We finished the evening right on the beach, sipping limonades with mint.

Do not be intimidated by checkpoints in Bethlehem, I used to live there and cross back and forth daily. Some of the nicest people in the world live there.
