During our trip to Israel, we took a day trip out to the city of Bethlehem to see the sites. Bethlehem is in Palestine, but just a few miles away from Israel.

While the city itself has some notable historical sites, the ride over there was not a great one. In fact, it was a bit scary! We took a minibus from the Old City of Jerusalem and headed out to the border crossing 7 miles away. There we had to wait for over an hour and a half while some sort of viiolent demonstration unfolded. Everything was tense, and everyone was on edge. Though, nothing that was cured upon arrival with a cup of hot coffee, a smoke through an Arabic water pipe, and a quick game of backgammon!

In the end, all I can say is its a shame there cant be peace here. Im sure both sides would benefit from the bump in tourism and an improvement in the quality of life.
