wow Israel is something else. I don't think I've ever been to a place where everywhere you go has got so much history and the people are so well schooled about it. I'm glad the war with Lebanon has come to an end and life is back to normal for most, because I've met some amazing people and been showed around places that a month ago I wouldn't have had the opportunity to do. The people here are really nice, and just stoked to meet a backpacker in their country, who's willing to ignore the media and give it a proper chance. delightfully suprised I have been, and have felt safer here then in a lot of other countries I've visited, so don't be shy and get over here - you'll love it! Special huge thanks to Mickey, Erez and Shaked who looked after me like their long lost brother, you guys were great and I hope that I can return the favor for you one day in New Zealand.
