View Full Version : Saturday in the Jerusalem forest

17th June 2007, 09:23 AM
Yesterday we took Paddy & Leto for a stroll in the forest. we figured this would be a good walk with some shade, nice breeze and a great view.

The dogs had so much fun, mostly off the lead they were happy to be leading the pack. At some point they started running and went off the trail - they found a BBQ party - they were sure that this was a surprise for them so they joined in and by the time we found them they were already mingling with anyone with a sausage!!!

Here are the pics:


A typical view of the Judea mountains:

I see that it's working! Part of the reason that I share such pictures with you is to show everyone how living in Jerusalem / Israel is actually beautiful and very normal.

Without getting into politics, usually people only get to hear about the bad stuff. I just want you to know that there are so many good and beautiful things that they don't tell you about on CNN or BBC. If I managed to get anyone interested in visiting here or maybe change a little bit of their view of the area - then YES ! That's an achievment. Unfortunately the media usually put a focus on the extrems, however, life in Israel is NOT what they normally show you.

Sorry if this is extremly off topic. I just wish to welcome you all in Jerusalem!!!

Just tell me when you are coming (-;

You should definitely visit then. Jerusalem is currently packed with tourists from around the world. I know this because I work in the most famous hotel - The King David.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Remeber, it's really different from what you may have thought. It's nice, safe, great weather and full of outstanding tourist attractions. (-:

I know exactly where you work. My niece and nephew-in-law met in Israel. After living in California for many years, they are going back for a 2 year work assignment. I'll tell them to say hello if they visit your hotel, it's a gorgeous hotel.
