|Abu Gosh is an Israeli-Arab town just outside Jerusalem on the road to Tel Aviv. Restaurants there are very famous.
Here's one of the chefs cooking the kabobs, which are a featured menu item after the many salads and appetizers.
|Our table was completely loaded with small dishes containing falafel, hummus, tahini, tabbouli salad, french fries,
baba ganoush, tomato salads, eggplant salads, and several other appetizers. Then came the kabobs!
|The Arab logo for Coca-Cola. I haven't noticed the Hebrew logo on the many
diet Cokes I've had this week, but maybe I somehow missed it.
|Our best bird of the day: a water rail, which lives in a small nature reserve next to the Israel Knesset and Supreme Court.
I have several more photos of the bird refuge, including more on bird banding, that I'll post separately some time.
|Later we stopped at Park Canada where we saw this cyclamen
and many other wild flowers in bloom.
