The Jewish National Fund’s Blueprint Negev project plans to develop this area, bringing people and facilities to the desert area. With rail transportation, people can work in Tel Aviv and live

What more, you ask? Well, with 12 minutes left at this computer, only the Air Force Museum and a Yemenite dinner! We saw bombs, missiles and planes, each with its own special story, and watched a film about the Israeli Air Force while seated (in economy class) in a huge plane.

Shalom and best wishes,
