Landing at Ben Gurion Airport Outside Tel Aviv

Landing in Israel yesterday afternoon, there was just enough light to see how green the country is at the end of the rainy season. Ben Gurion Airport is a dazzling new facility. Very contemporary, easy to move around in.
A great haze has settled on the country as winds have blown sand from the Sahara Desert in North Africa---much like the Mistral in Southern France---into the Middle East. And it has made visibility extremely limited, in spite of sunshine today.
