over from Jordan by the Allenby
We begin our explorations with Jericho
before we visited Jerusalem, New
Jerusalem, the Mount of Olives,
Bethlehem, Tiberias, Nazareth, Tabigha,
Qumran, Masada, Beit Haarava and
lies in the West Bank, the population
of around 6,000 are mainly Palestinians.
Believed to have been settled around 8000 B.C.
The towns have been built on top of one another.
According to the Bible the Israelites marched
around the city, and with their shouts and
trumpets blew the city walls down.
In the six-day war in 1967 Israel seized
the West Bank and other Arab territories.
In 1993, Israel signed an agreement that
named Jericho the first West Bank area to
be given a form of Palestinian self-rule.
We had some fun to get into Jericho.
The world's oldest city.
