    The olive trees are quite impressive.
    What was your favorite meal or food on this vaykay?
    Don't say hummus.

    Falafel balls in this giant tortilla thing made by a Druze granny, on the side of the road coming down the Carmel Mtns after spending the day in Haifa and Akko.
    The Tortilla thing, who's name i forget is cooked on a HOT upside down wok looking thing, liquid is poured out and it cooks and she peels it off and one of her sons fills it with just fried Falafel balls and all sorts of veggies and other yummy stuff.

    My father would say Stuffed Lamb chops in an Arab restaurant near Afula.
    i stuck with Hummus and Arab salad for that meal, i don't do no baaah baaah.

    As close to dangerous was the Lebanese border near Metula and the Syrian border in the Golan Heights (land mine signs all over) but i never felt scared.
    Except driving thru crowded skinny ass streets in East Jerusalem, that i did not like at all.
