falafel, shawarma, or pizza – day 7

Day 7 was another busy one.  After leaving the kibbutz, we took a long, muddy, and green hike along the El-Al River.  As you can see, this was completely different terrain than we saw down south in the Negev.  There was a lot more green, more water, and more cows.

After the hike, we cleaned our shoes of mud and went over the Golan Heights Winery in Katzrin for a tour.  Wine tasting done, we stopped at the top of Mount Bental (הר בנטל) for a view of Syria and a lesson from Yaron on the Yom Kippur War (מלחמת יום הכיפורים).  History lessons done, we headed to Tiberias for a stop at a hot springs (really an old-people bath house).  Once we were all freshly coated in slimy volcanic water, we quickly went to Jerusalem for the night.
