im not trying to judge, but you find a random cemetery to be interesting as long as it's old?

Not at all!
It's the history behind it that I was fascinated.
I enjoyed seeing the remote location where people carried the deceased by hand up the rock etc.

I dont drive stick and the price for a manual is much higher, to rent it from thu- sun I would assume is about the same as taking a cab/private transfer.

Do you people recommend we do the rock ourselves or take a tour- guide up there?

Assuming that we just want to do the Rock ourselves, has anyone here gone down through the Nature Preserve and stopped at the various sites (like the Apes Den and St. Michael's cave) on the way down? About how long does it take.

Also, any update on the kosher situation in GIB? I know @Yehuda tried to eat at the "not really kosher" place from Google, but besides that, where's the best place to pick up lunch on Friday? We'll be coming from SVQ.
