Jordan river

We received a very warm welcome at Haifa - in  the current climate Israel seems keen to make much of our visit to prove they are not the baddies everyone seems to think they are.
 
We went inland to the Sea of Galillee and the River Jordan where John the Baptist baptised Jesus.

We were invited to spend an evening with a local family and we were made very welcome.  They showed us around Haifa and then took us back to their apartment for dinner.  It was a very nice evening, and there was some interesting discussion of current affairs from the Israeli point of view.  A very worthwhile experience.
