An experience of this kind is nol the only unusual one await- ing the visitor to Israel these days, for the country is not wiizt it was literally. Ths area under Israeli control is four limes the size it was before the Six Day War. As a result there are some interesting variations on the "Tcurs of the Holy Land." You might fir.d yourself on a bus with other tourists and Israeli holidaymakers on your way to see the long deserted Syrian hunkers overlooking the peace- ful Sea of Galilee. You might even find among the debris, as one visitor did, a tin of Chinese boot polish.

Many tourists, of course, prc- I for to save Tel Aviv for the end of a holiday, permitting them lo better gauge how much money they can spare for shop- ping. "Either way. time should be saved to visit the adjoining old town of Jaffa with its res- taurants overlooking one of the i world's oldest harbors.
