Golan Heights, originally uploaded by Corey Frost.

Karen's uncle Avi kindly took us for a drive around the Sea of Galilee—including up the hillsides on the east side, a little piece of occupied territory called the Golan Heights. On the other side of the valley in this picture is Jordan, and a bit farther up the valley is Syria. We saw old Syrian machine-gun and mortar bunkers looking down on the Galilee, as well as abandoned Arab villages. Now the plateau is covered with Israeli onion farms.
