across sinai

i have arrived in palestine…after a wonderful but rather cold three weeks in turkey i made the journey down to a heated cairo and then took a bus through the sinai peninsula to take a short walk into israel. after crossing the border at the northern tip of the red sea  i took a bus through the negev desert to jerusalem, where sahar met me and we came to ramallah in palestine.

I am spending a day more here before I move on to Tel Aviv, but will be (hopefully) wrapping up some Turkey updates and getting them online before I go!
