I had a week there two years ago and had a fantastic time. What are you interested in finding out? here is something new:



New Arrival Procedures for Israel Starting April 01, 2009
Effective April 1, 2009, the Aviation Security Operations Center (ASOC) requires that each aircraft entering Israeli Airspace must identify themselves with a specialcode that is obtained by the captain of the flight.Once the landing permit is approved the pilot will be provided a permit number whichis to be used as the username and a password. The captain must use these to log intohttp://asoc.mot.gov.il/ to choose his special code. The code is the captains choice;please be careful it is a 6 character code that can be remembered. Additionally, thecaptain will be asked three personal questions, such as what is your dog's name?BEWARE: The username and password may only be used one time to enter the website.It is imperitive the special code is obtained prior to submitting a flight plans ordeparting for Israel. The advance notification of arrival should be submitted nolater 6 hours before departure to Israel.The captain will be asked for the 6 character security code by ATC prior to enteringIsraeli airspace.

If your dog's name is muhammad, you might want to change it.

Have a second passport....or ask them not to stamp your primary one. Just in case you ever go to any other Middle Eastern countries.

Be sure to go to Jerusulem, and Masada. We stayed on beach in Tel Aviv at the Renaissance and enjoyed the beach a lot. Head to North Seaport area for dinner as there are good places to eat there. We actually rented a car, but we are adventurous. Most people would take the traditional tours, which are good.

I agree that the Renaissance is a good hotel. If you stay anywhere near there you HAVE to eat at this Italian restaraunt:

http://boccaccio.rest-e.co.il/

Its called Boccaccio and is at 106 ha-yarkon st. which is an easy walk from the Renaissance or Sheraton and is my second favorite Italian place in the world. You have to try the braised lamb. Wow.

The Tel-Aviv Brewhouse is also very good.

It's all about the food. Everything else is just fluff, really.....


Edit: .... and oh yeah, the women, damn....
