      Oh I am glad neither succeed in doing each other in! Then there may not have been you and your other half :(

      I should add that history to that part of the hotel...it is fascinating

      and definitely not cheap! But it is so beautiful!

      It's a wonderful hotel, not cheap, though!

      In the 1940s, my grandfather was stationed in Jerusalem for a time. My other half's great-uncle was trying to blow up British soldiers, fortunately he didn't get my grandfather (-:
