Photos from our visit to Israel and the West Bank (29 Oct - 15 Nov 2009), including the Merkavah tour - cultures, religions, histories, dances. We also visited a permaculture project, and met up with some members of my family.

There are over 80 Sets of photos - some are on particular places, others are on various community groups and their dances, others are on more general topics. We'll be adding brief descriptions to the front page of each Set, and to some of the photos.

You are welcome to browse, add comments, ask questions, add links. You will find that the front page of each Set has a Slideshow option, which displays a full-screen version of each picture.

You are welcome to pass on urls to others, and to insert links into your own web pages (please include an acknowledgement).

If you wish to make further use of any of the photos, please note that they are under this Creative Commons license.

You can find an account of the trip on our Merkavah 09 blog. Each photo Set has a link through to the relevant post in the blog - or will have, when we've written up all the posts :-) .

Please note: the places are displayed here more or less in reverse chronological order, so the beginning of the trip (Jerusalem) is at the bottom of the page.
