This morning we are taking the Egged bus to the Malha Train Station in the southern part of Jerusalem. My Cousin Jacky is flying to Israel this coming Thursday. I want to find out if taking the train to Ben Gurion airport is possible.
We take the #17 bus to Malha, which lets us off about 1/2km from the train station. As we are walking, we pass Teddy Stadium where we believe a championship football match was just played.
Inside, the train station sort of looks like BART [Bay Area Rapid Transit] in California.
We find out that the train goes to Tel Aviv, but not to the Ben Gurion Airport where Cousin Jacky will be arriving. So, we will be taking a bus/taxi to the airport on Thursday.
We catch the #18 bus to the nearby Jerusalem/Malha Mall. After looking around in the Office Depot, it seems time to eat lunch. There is a food court here. Little Mavicito captured a pic of Burger King's menu board.
Do you see #1 on the menu board? That's a regular Whopper combo. With the dollar valued today at 30 centsUS = 1 Israeli shekel, that Whopper costs $10.77US! Wow! What a whopper!
