Take a virtual tour of Israel

Ever lived or stayed in Israel? Now you can visit again - without leaving your seat. has been photographing every street and every building in the country. Security risk, I hear you say? Who cares! You can look up all your former haunts and see what has become of them.

Here, for example, is the first flat my parents rented in Jerusalem, after several months in a centre for new immigrants - nearly 30 years ago. There was no fence back then.

I spent five years of my childhood on the top floor of this building. And countless hours on the balcony on the top left of this one. Our old neighbour still has the same car.

It's addictive. Enjoy!
