Summer Travels 2011…(20) – Time to come home…

So, despite having just posted, I have this piece of breaking news…just heard the tragic news related in this article

I was planning to head to Eilat today, potentially on this bus. So something tells me it is time to come home. I’ve changed my flight to the 22nd, the earliest available, and I’m looking forward to relaxing in relative safety of Tel Aviv until then. In part, my decision has been informed by the facts of history that say Israel rarely leaves attacks like this unpunished. My plan had been to head to Eilat and on to Sinai, before returning to the city to go to Petra in Jordan. It seems unwise at best given today’s events, and I am growing incredibly weary of the tensions of travelling here…

So. I’m safe. But getting the **** out.
