Last year my pals and I cycled in The Galilee, Northern Israel, to raise money for Nazareth Hospital Paediatric Department. We raised over £50,000 but we could use more! Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel; the people are lovely, and the kids are awesome. Nazareth also treats kids in the West Bank of Palestine who have very limited access to healthcare. They need your help! Go to my sponsorship page to find out more and see what you can do! Maybe even join us in 2017..?

As part of my effort to raise some cash for the Nazareth Hospital, I am planning to retroblog my 1993 elective. I spent 6 weeks in Nazareth in 1993 and another 2 weeks looking around the rest of Israel, so I hope this plan gets you hopping over to my sponsorshop page, and also following my training (and ultimately the cycle ride itself) on Twitter.
This is the unavoidable camel shot, taken at the Jaffa Gate in Old Jerusalem, shortly before I dismounted the beast and headed in rapid pursuit through the dimly-lit warrens of the Old City in pursuit of the wee lad who took the photo and subsequently tried to make off with my camera.
