I’m taking an early night. I have to wake up at 3:30 tomorrow morning to catch my first of three flights, the last of which will hopefully wind up in Tel Aviv. A nice discovery: an Audi A8L, in heavily armored W12 form, is the state car of Israel, so it looks like I’ll be in good company.

The other state cars include Land Cruisers and a couple Volvo S80 stretched limos.
