The thriving cosmopolitan city of Ramallah is the Capitol of the West Bank. It is located approximately six miles north of Jerusalem with a population of about 65,000 people, most of whom are Arabs.
A friend and I hired an Arab taxi driver, whom we met outside Damascas Gate of Old Jerusalem, to take us there one afternoon. We felt comfortably safe during the entire trip.
