Holy Land

I want to go to Israel. Even more, now that I've had a peak into what it is like there.

Most Israelis live somewhere between Baer Sheeba and Haifa. The strip of land is less then 15 miles wide at some points and a drive between the two spots could take just over 2 hours. What's so striking about the countryside is that within that 2 hour drive you can go from a harsh desert environment in the Negev to the lush Green mountains of Carmel and The Galilee. It is a stunning contrast in such a small country.

Fascinating stuff. Go check out the whole thing, it's well worth your time.
