In Jerusalem

Still getting settled here -- I've been 'borrowing' high speed internet from a nearby hotel; paying 12NIS (about $5.00 for an hour's access --I'm sitting on a rooftop patio of the (much less expensive) hotel across the street.

Because the connection isn't reliable, I'll hold off more formal postings until we get more settled. But first impression is, if you din't read the newspapers or watch the television news, you would not sense there are any problems here -- construction is booming, people going about their normal lives; the only 'irregularities' are the security guards checking bags in front of grocery stores! And we are near the center of Jerusalem.
