Little Donkey...more problems

Quite like this, a good way to bring the problems of the Holy Land into focus for us westerners.

The BBC's Aleem Maqbool walking from Nazareth to Bethlehem, retracing the journey made by Joseph and Mary, pregnant with Our Lord. He's keeping an online video diary and a blog as he does so :

BBC : The Road to Bethlehem

Will be following with interest.

"Two donkeys down, I crossed into the West Bank alone" is a great quote.

At Christmas and Easter especially it's always particularly poigniant to hear of the suffering and strife in places we are so familiar with from The Bible.
