Note: Sometimes the place names do not display on the flight. The problem is intermittent and I have not yet solved it. If you push the pause button, the place-name labels will then display.

If I forget you, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill. May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth if I do not remember you, if I do not consider Jerusalem my highest joy.

- Psalm 137:5-6

Day 9: Return to Ben Gurion Airport
We drove this in the dark. I'm guessing as to the route through West Jerusalem, but we did go down Highway 1, so the path from Nephtoah to the airport is dependable.
