    Jerusalem has always been a volatile city and it's best if you are always aware of your surroundings. it was a young women with an uzi across her chest as she herded a small group of school children throught he streets that reminded me there could be danger.

    You don't want to be in the old city when it gets dark. You will get lost (especially without a map). Forget about asking the way. Some people might be helpful, but most send you the wrong way!

    Also watch out you get sunburnt very easily here! I burnt my head, arms and shoulders ouch! You can see my sunburnt head on the picture ;o)

    Guidebooks often warn about walking through the old city at night, and I can see why. As soon as dusk descends, it can be spooky, especially if you're a solo female traveler. The narrow paths and sundry dark alcoves and alleys are tailor-made for thieves and rogues of the night. I stayed in the old city, at the Lutheran Youth Hostel, but didn't go far alone after dark; why chance it?
