I Walked from Jerusalem to a McDonald's 10 Miles Away










I didn't actually eat there. I've been banning McDonald's for years, partially for how badly their arches go with places like the outskirts of Jerusalem, but hell, it makes for a good story.

Is the McDonald's in Mevaserret? You know I stayed in Ramat Motza and tried to find the old, old, old synagogue of Mevaseret or Beit Zayit which is now caught in one of the entrance ramps to the Jerusalem-TA highway. Miss you, of course.

how lovely! where was the tunnel? did you go alone? how long did it take? did you actually go into the mcdonald's?

The tunnel is right underneath the Motza "bend" in the highway, where the road turns sharply to the right when you're with your back to Jerusalem.

Right to the west of the bend, on the north side of the road, is that synagogue you were looking for, 3asl.

The walk took two hours and I never went into the McDonalds but bought myself a bottle of juice in the adjacent Mevaseret shopping center. I was researching for a writing project I'm planning, but the walk was fun and interesting also regardless.

I remember taking the same route some years ago. Man, now that I think about it, it was like 13-14 years ago. I guess it's time for another "crying for my lost youth" session, and the only alcohol in the house is irish cream liquer... oh well

The climb indicator which happens to be a attribute to the TC5000 and TC5500 visually tracks the
elevation you cover in ft.
