I just returned from a nice holiday to Israel... 20+ degrees, sun, palm trees, historical sites galore, delicious hummus, etc.
The only problem was no bicycles (bike rental scheme in Tel Aviv = fail) :(
I'll write more about it this week.
For now, I'd like to just highlight how much this guy rocks! He's cycling, midday, in the dead sea desert area between Masada and Arad, getting buzzed by cars and obnoxious/envious photographers.
