Vincent Poon :: Bethlehem (2-Sep)
 
Needless to say Bethlehem is the birthplace for Christ and it is definitely a must for Catholics like me though it is situated in the West Bank. In fact this was the only city I visited (alone) in the West Bank! To be honest, I felt more unsafe in Jerusalem when I saw kids playing with electric stun guns (near the bus station) than any time in this town
