Seems like a smart decision, Pauline.Wednesday March 11
Sunny and warm (65F)
We drove out to the Galilee and hiked up Mount Tabor. It was fabulous. I’ll post photos later.
Things are escalating here re: coronavirus, so we are cutting the trip very short and flying home Friday. Oh well ...
And to venture into politics.....So smart of Israel to make strong decisions re border closing and isolation, to slow down spread of the virus, despite heavy dependence on tourism. Whereas here in the United States of Fantasyland our government has been waiting so long to acknowledge there’s a problem that we don’t have the ability to test many people, never even mind a smart public-health policy.
Enjoy the rest of your trip and have a safe flight home.
