Ik mag toch hopen dat de accommodatieprijzen in sjekel zijn en niet in dollars?
Dan zou ik dat toch even extra vermelden. Om misverstanden te voorkomen.

Ik denk dat die zijn wel in US dollars.
In shekels is het onrealistisch weinig. Zal het even navragen.

Dat zijn dollars Eric, maar daarvoor zit je wel in een mooi hotel aan zee. Er zijn vast wel goedkopere opties in de stad, maar je moet toch wel uitgaan van Nederlandse hotelprijzen. Veruit de goedkoopste optie is natuurlijk met een groepje via airbnb een appartement huren.
