Up to Jerusalem

I got some great news today. I'm going to Jerusalem!

What with the unexpected victory of Hamas in the Palestinian elections, the whole scenario in the Middle East has changed. So we have beefed up our presence in Israel and the Palestinian territories and will keep it that way until after the Israeli election at the end of March.

I'll be going over on Feb 19 for two, possibly, three weeks. Having only spent a long weekend there two years ago, I didn't have enough time for all the exploring, worshipping and shopping that I would have liked.

This time, I certainly plan to make up for that -- plus doing a bit of work.
