I’ve spent the last three days running ragged, showing some loved ones around Jerusalem.
It’s been great fun, and a swell excuse to see lots of parts of the city I haven’t in a long time, and eating really well (because what, I’m going to take them to the inferior hummus joint?) Ultimately, though, I really do prefer living here to being a tourist. It’s amazing how much more aggressive the cab drivers are at the touristy spots–I’ve never had to fight so hard to make a cab driver fork over change or agree to drive wtih the meter on. Nonetheless, it’s a swell town, this Jerusalem.
