So massive coincidence that my friend Matt (just back from Israel and at Fresh Cafe last night - AWESOME!) was in fact sharing a room with Chris who'd been on my blogroll for ages now! Have a look at Chris's reflections on the whole thing.
We were due to be in Israel this October but have (somewhat sensibly) postponed until next year, may be in May. Seeing Chris's pictures tho makes me wanna go even though now is not the time!
