I spent a day out of cycling/trekking to visit some projects with Tom. This involved being in a taxi, from where this image of a settlement behind the wall was taken
Palestinian taxis cannot travel everywhere. To cross into Jerusalem, they have to have Israeli plates, but that’s not always enough.
The road that can be seen in the next image is of a road that only vehicles with Israeli plates can use. Our driver told us that, even though he has Israeli plates, he was stopped on this road because he was a Palestinian who wasn’t carrying an Israeli passenger.
The separation wall in has become something of a tourist attraction in Bethlehem, and you can find any number of images of it on the Web, so I won’t fill this story with mine.
