Bethlehem is in Palestine, not in Israel. You can’t just drive the 5 miles from Jerusalem to Bethlehem because there is a border crossing; Bethlehem is in the West Bank of another country – Palestine.

In our case, the pickup was a truck that backed down the one-way street to the National Hotel entrance, picked us up, and delivered us to a bus. We were dropped off at the end of the tour, not near enough to the promised Jaffa Gate.
