Israel is NOT a third world country. You can buy anything here, even in the smallest town, except, evidently, sheets that actually fit the bed. So then how is it possible that hotels in Israel don't have sheets that fit the beds? And that they don't use mattress pads, especially when they don't have properly fitting sheets?
Basically, when you pull the topsheet up to get into the bed, the bottom sheet, which is not fitted, comes off too. Yes, you can tuck it back in, but then you get into bed and turn over once, it's back out. And by the next morning, you may as well never have had a sheet on the bed to begin with.
And hotel towels are still terrible. They are all the size of washcloths and threadbare. Now I realize that our groups are staying at the nicest hotels, but they aren't so bad....
