Israel, December 2007

Daniela took me on a wonderful trip to Israel this year. The deal was to be willing to backpack it, staying at hostels. "Great" is too tame a word. It was an unforgettable experience. My only wish was that it could have been a few weeks/months longer. What we saw, however, we were able to see in-depth.

Below are links to slides of the pictures I took. If you have a fast computer, you can see the whole thing at once. It takes a while to load. I have also broken it down into parts, which may be preferable.

For some reason, these Power Point programs do not always load the same way. If on your computer it loads in Power Point itself (so that you can see the thumbnails/little pictures along the left side) you can run the slide show by clicking on Slide Show at the top or at the bottom right, depending on your set up.

If, on the other hand, it comes up as a slide show already running (all you see is the picture), you may be able to navigate by using the up and down arrows, or by clicking on the picture with your mouse. If that doesn't work, right-click the mouse and then click on "Next" / "Previous" or "Advance" / "Reverse" ... and you can return to this page at any time by clicking your BACK button.

If you have any problem getting the Slide Shows to run, or if you don't want to wait for these rather big files to load, you can see the pictures (smaller size) on regular web site pages at the "Fast View" links below.
