View of Tiberius
We jumped on a bus that took us across northern Israel over to the Sea of Galilee
region. For Christians, the Sea of Galilee region is where Jesus really started His ministry, where He performed many miracles, and where He handed over the leadership of the church to St. Peter before His Ascension. We got off the bus in Tiberius
and spent a little time walking around the city before taking a taxi out to Tabgha
and Capernaum (see those sites for details), where many biblical events took place. At the recommendation of a friend, we stayed in one of several tzimers about 15 minutes north of Tiberius on the Sea of Galilee, in a little town called Had Nes. What is a tzimer, you ask? It's a little cabin in the middle of nowhere with jacuzzi, refrigerator, stove, satellite tv, nice bathroom, etc. It's a very nice little place with a very romantic setting. The owner of the tzimer cooked us a huge meal and we ate, relaxed, had wine, and enjoyed the evening.
