Schöne Stationen - bis auf eine

Wer die Beschreibung liest, wird sicher schon erkannt haben, dass hier ein straffes Programm ansteht. Dabei sind alle Stationen ausgesprochen sehenswert - bis auf eine eben. Nach dem Mittagessen in Akko wird man nämlich in einen Schmuckladen geführt und bekommt in bester Kaffeefahrt Manier Produkte angepriesen, die in jedem Ramschladen zum 1/3 Preis angeboten werden. Beispiel: Wir haben hier genau den gleichen Granatapfel, für den wir in Jerusalem 60 Schekel bezahlt haben, für 189 Schekel gesehen. Ärgerlich hierbei: Man wird in dem Laden eingeschlossen (!!!!) und muss 30 Minuten darin verbringen. In der Zeit kommen alle 6 anwesenden Verkäufer einzeln immer wieder und wollen ruppig zum Kauf animierem. Dafür dass man wir für den Ausflug mehr als 200 Euro bezahlt haben, ist das eine riesengroße Unverschämtheit. Wir hätten diese 30 Minuten lieber auf eigene Faust Akko erkundet - wir durften aber nicht raus. Sieht man von dieser Freiheitsberaubung ab, so war zumindest alles andere gut...
