Golan Heights

This area is part of the disputed territoy. Israel occupied it after the '67 war and has develped it into a lush farming area. Many reminders of the war are still visible. We stayed in a Kibbutz overlooking the Sea of Galilee. We visited a Druze village for lunch and also a nature preserve.
