Lunch in the Golan Heights and other stuff

So as mentioned previously, we spent the night in a Kibbutz in Kefar HaNasie. We lounged for a while in the morning before heading to do some low key kayaking on the Jordan River (like you do!) No pictures of that obviously - luckily my camera didn't meet the same fate my new sunglasses did when Asaf the maniac tipped me over. (The sunnies are still MIA.)

After working up a bit of an appetite we had lunch in the Golan Heights (I still can't get over it - this was the same area where more than 1000 people died in the Lebanon/Israeli conflict last year!!!) We had yet another delicious meal and some even tastier arabic sweets. We then headed to Mt Bental for a dusk view of the Golan Heights.

Heading through the Golan Heights

Not being able to read Hebrew, I didn't realise this, but Avi informed me that the green sign says stop border crossing - into Syria!

Lunch with the gang - Asaf, Ayala, Rick, Nivi & Tom

This was rather amusing - the guy driving the white car was holding a rope that the 2 horses were tied to. Good way of exercsing the horses but not yourself eh?

The observatory at Mt Bental. Check out the metal silhouettes - a bit eerie

A view from the top. Being such a strategic spot you can see why it's so sought after by both the Israelis and Arabs...

Another day in Israel coming to a close :(
