I'm at Ben Gurion Airport ready to leave in 2 hours. This has to be the best airport in the world since it has free wifi.

A highlight of the trip today, we went to Herodion. This is a large hill just west of Bethlehem where Herod (yes, that Herod) leveled the top off and built a palace.Here are few pictures from the top.
Herodion had a very deep cistern.

Then on to Bethlehem. But through the "security fence." What a monstrosity.

I might as well show you a picture of the crusader Church of the Nativity.
