Flying to Tel Aviv was without problem, but there have been other issues. First, the doctors of the Hadassah Hospital went on strike after they received only half their salary for January. That was fixed (at least temporarily). Then there was a rally grid locking traffic in Jerusalem on Sunday so we stayed in Tel Aviv for the night. When we landed there was a yellow haze that was still there today. A rare event of sand coming in from the Sahara.
Now there is unusually warm weather for the season, supposedly getting even hotter later in the week.
