Tel Burga

Sometimes things work out sometimes they don't. The boy and I set out as usual at 6am to find Tel Burga. It seemed relatively close by, near Binyamina. It was pinpointed on google maps. Well we did not find it. We drove around the area, walked over fields and through grape vines - Nada. A farmer spotted us and took time off threatening his Taiwanese workers to come over and check us out. "There's nothing here" he said, "people come here all the time to steal stones, but there's no ruins". Perhaps he thought we were up to no good. He continued to watch us carefully until we drove off. On second thoughts I'm sure he knows where the ruins are.
