I have taken another step to prepare for my forthcoming trip to Israel, visiting Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, Galilee, etc. It is a step that may strike fear into the hearts of many.
I have bought a pair of swimming trunks.
I promise not to post pictures. Lady readers might be overcome.
UPDATE: The internet is a curious place. I just visited Google images and typed “swimsuit” in the search box, thinking to get a photo of a pair of trunks. What I actually got was 10 pages of pretty young ladies in beachwear. Not a single man, nor a single image of swimwear, rather than people wearing swimwear. I infer the male-to-female use of Google images must still be something like 20:1, therefore!
