Half of our friends said we were crazy who would go to Israel in wartime.
The rest of our friends would love to go with us!
Quite honestly, we did not feel unsafe at any time. I know from my red alert app on the iPhone
that rockets rained over Israel, but it was not around where we stayed.
We had rocket alarm in Jerusalem once while we were there and the rocket was shot down by
the Iron Dome. Aside from that, we heard a couple of times rockets or bombs far away.
No damage (not even sunburned, despite over 40 degrees several days.)
No food poisoning!
Not even once arguing with Mr. Spiderdan (miracle)
Jerusalem Hostel in Jaffa road
The best thing about this hostel is the roof terrace.
And if you are lucky you also get a private balcony.

Breakfast at Jerusalem Hostel is very "thin".
However, you can find plenty of cafes along the Jaffa road,
Even Norwegian salad!
I hope it's good! I never eat laks outside Norway
There is something really wrong with the ingredients, can you guess?
Pomegranate has never been in a Norwegian salad.
Every day there are artists who play or act in other ways in the large open space
across the street from the hostel
From Jaffa road it's not a very long way walk to the old city.
I walked the streets of Jerusalem before the rooster crows
With only small birds..
..and clothes out to dry as companies
The time of day when no one disturbs the mind..
It is possible also in Jerusalem
I found the people at the Wailing Wall
I ate lunch while people celebrated Bar mitsva (I think)

A day full of memories goes towards evening
