Gilo Rhymes With Shiloh, But They are Very, Very Different
I've been tutoring a child in Gilo recently. Until then, I have very few occasions/reasons to ever go to Gilo. Of course, I've passed pretty close by when going to Kever Rachel, Rachel's Tomb.
Gilo, just a Jerusalem neighborhood, is enormous. It's the size and population of an Israeli city.
These photos give just a tiny peek. The easiest way to tour it is just to get onto one of the buses that go through it, like the 31, 32, 71, 72.
