Ashdod (Jerusalem), Israel

The day was spent entirely on tour, so we saw nothing other than what the tour guide wanted to show us. While simply being at these sites was impressive, the way these sites were treated and the experience at them really bothered both of us. Plus I was feeling really sick this day. Unfortunately we had a really bad tour guide and spending all day with her ruined a lot of the experience. I think we would have enjoyed this area if we had gone on our own.
