And that's what's on the right of the first photo- the mall of modern Beit She'an, whose most prominent sign is...well, imagine some Canaanite king millennia ago:
"O prophet, tell me of the future of this place."
"I see...I see...two glorious golden arches!"
Yup, it's a McDonald's. My camera can't quite capture it, but, yeah, you can see them at the same time.
Plug: I highly recommend the felafel place next door to the mall. And Kibbutz Shluchot, down the road, where we spent Shabbat.
More pictures to follow, I hope.
