From Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Israel is a small country in the Middle East. That is: the other end of Asia. Climate is warm and sunny. Haifa is on the slopes of Mt. Carmel and thus provides a combination of sunny beaches as well as more moderate climate.

This bid is still under construction.
