We've done it again! This time we biked from Petra in Jordan up to Nazareth in Israel, to raise money for the Nazareth Hospital CT Scanner appeal. Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel, but they still don't have a dedicated Stroke Unit to cope with this devastating condition and major cause of death. Click here to find out more, and please help this fantastic cause. Thanks!

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.
