Two for One....

As you all know, I'm pretty remedial when it comes to taking pictures - so it naturally came as a surprise when I finished not one - but TWO rolls of film (two. two rolls of film HA.HA.HA.) last weekend. It's all down to this really cool 'field trip' I went on. It had all of the classic elements:

Road Trip, Paul Simon, Ruins AND the best restaurant in Israel! (more on that later)

I went to a place called Beit She'an, or Israel's Pompei (or so the guide information says). But this place was seriously cool - at various points in its history (as with many places in Israel) it was controlled by the Egyptians, Jews, Philistines (and Jews again), Assyrians, Greeks, and Romans. It marks the place where King Saul and his sons were defeated by the Philistines and where King David defeated them. It's located in the Gilboa mountain range about 20 minutes from Megiddo (you may know that as Armaggedon) and 3km from Jordan.

Anyhow, so don't be surprised if you start to see more pictures that I've actually taken in days to come.
