Someone told me that there are a couple of new food places in AC.

True? Anyone have info?

Sprint works fine in Israel and in many European countries (Holland, France, Italy, Spain...)

2g works but it is very slow. Too slow for browsing. Fine for emails and whatsapp. Although my whatsapp messages don't come in until I open the app.

I tried Sprint's 4g upgrade for $5/day - $25/week and it was great. (Still had that issue with Whatsapp, though.)

Any place to get gifts like they sell in Geula (Mezuza holders, challah baskets) but without the tourist trap prices?

I was never in Akko.

What is the arab situation there? Is it an Arab or Jewish city? Safe?

Or maybe you can compare it to Shar Shchem vs Jewish Quarter?

Can I see the sites on my own or is it better to have a guide?

I'll be taking a train from Valencia to Cordoba/Seville (arriving mid-day) and flying out of Seville (afternoon the next day).

I need some advice as to where to sleep, Cordoba or Seville. Which city has more to see? Which is nicer to walk around in the evening?

Or maybe, I should just choose one of them?

Thanks

Planning a stay at Hotel Indigo in Ramat Gan.

Any recommendations for Restaurants in the area? (Rabanut for dairy - Mehadrin for Meat)

What's with Blackstone (in the hotel)? Kosher? Decent?

What's a bussiness seat like? Going from nyc to tlv?
 And which airline goes that route?

Both KLM & AF fly NYC-TLV with a stop.

AF has a angle flat bed while KLM has a flat bed.

BUT that is only on the NYC-Europe leg. Europe to TLV is regular coach with middle seat empty. Maybe a couple of inches more leg room.

After security there is Aroma in the food court.

Any recommendations for Kever Rochel/Chevron for 9 people? (Not the 3-4 am option)

I got quoted 1000nis which seems expensive.

For comparison, what would an airport taxi charge? And do they have vans or do vans need to be ordered in advance?

I contacted a couple of people and they want around $100 for car and $160 for a van.

How do I get one for the price you mention? (200nis/350nis)
