I spent my annual leave in this place, which from old is dear to many of us around the world: the "little town" whose name evokes magic associations in each of us from the early days of our childhood. The welcome in Bethlehem I received was nothing like what Mary and Joseph had to go through 2000 years earlier. There is plenty of room in all inns these days! There were hardly any visitors around and no one to buy the local's beautiful and mostly hand-crafted goods.
Seeing is believing in Bethlehem
