Now I’m not talking about the transparent border of Egypt and Israel, where the fence is only 30 km from the Gaza Strip to the south, and the second is…

Eilat – from the point of view of a woman

Winter is already at hand, but I still want to lie on the beach under the gentle southern sun. Where then to go? If for you, King Solomon and Queen of Sheba are authorities, then here is a piece of advice for you: go to Eilat. Ever since ancient times, this oasis in the desert on the Red Sea coast is considered in every sense the royal place for relaxation. And today tourists from all over the world easily go there. Gradient Travel Agency sends Russian travelers to Eilat.

Nature fashioned at the northern end of the Red Sea, at the southernmost point of Israel, an oasis of exceptional beauty: mountains painted in purple tones, dazzling white sands of beaches, turquoise sea … And – the sun, which has received an eternal residence here: the average maximum temperature in Eilat – from + 21C in January to + 39C in July. At the same time, there is practically no rain. According to long-term observations of weather forecasters, on the coast of the Gulf of Eilat the sky remains cloudless 359 days a year. And the warm deep-water currents contribute to the fact that the water in the sea is like fresh milk, and this is already all year round. Continue reading

Red Sea, beautiful Eilat

And yet it came, the day of departure to Moscow! But I really wanted to stay in Eilat, even for at least a week.

The first minutes after arriving at this Israeli resort are somewhat reminiscent of a contrast shower: cold – hot, cold – hot. Cold (relatively cool cabin of the airbus) – hot (heated air of the runway) – cold (air-conditioned interior of a comfortable bus) – hot (short run from the bus step to the hotel door) – cold (phew, again – air conditioning, cool …).

The pianist in the lobby rapturously raises “Black Eyes” and “Kalinka.” Yes, thoroughly prepared for the arrival of guests from Russia in Eilat. And they decided to show our group, composed of Moscow journalists and employees of the travel agency “INTERGARANT”, as they say, “goods face.” Continue reading

Want to take a walk in Israel? Be truthful and sincere

The consular service of the Embassy of the State of Israel in Russia is the very place that no person can get around who decides to go to this country for one or another need. Here, of course, it is always crowded, bustling, noisy. And because of that – a little stupid. The first time you get here you need to overcome confusion, get together, group, concentrate before starting your own business. Apparently, understanding the feelings of “clients,” the consular department adviser Yitzchak KARMEL-KAGAN began a conversation with the i correspondent from complaining about cramped working conditions. Say, you yourself see how difficult it is for us to serve everyone, to deliver information on innovations to our clients on time (see “i” b 35 (194), p. 15).

– Even when such a procedure as, say, issuing visas or issuing invitations changes in the direction of relief, people take this with caution. Precisely because they were not notified in advance. Continue reading
