Israel In Maps

Today is Yom Ha’atzmaut, and though I normally spend Israel’s birthday dancing and eating falafel, this year I’m limiting myself to the falafel because I’m so freaking busy. Oy.

However, I am taking some time today to appreciate all of the crazy and cool thing about Israel, via my love of maps. If you, like me, think cartography is really cool, here are some weird but interesting maps to whet your palate. Click on the pictures to links for more maps.
