Wow, I knew that security would be tight here but it still takes you aback when you see so much of it. To people here, it’s obviously a way of life. But I was stopped by security right after getting off the plane and asked a bunch of questions, then grilled by the passport control agent. But when I entered the prime shopping mall, the Dizenghoff Center, each entrance had a guard going through people’s bags and waving a wand on everyone. He asked me if I had a weapon on me. It’s amazing the freedoms we take for granted in the USA and so easy to criticize others who live with uncertainty every day.
