Welcome and thanks!
Hi, James. It looks like no-one gave you an official welcome yet. So, welcome and thanks for the great work you're putting up! And here are some useful links for you, in case you haven't already checked them out:
First, there is the Wikitravel:Manual of style, which has links to all kinds of other useful pages.
Secondly, there is the Wikitravel:Travellers' Pub, where I would like to buy you a virtual drink of your choice for all your efforts. But seriously, that's where you can discuss anything that goes beyond what is relevant to - or getting response on - a talk page for a particular article.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them here or in the pub, but for now, it looks like you've jumped in with both feet and done a lot of good already in a short time. I hope you keep it up.
All the best,

Wow, sorry to be so slow in responding! I would be more than happy to take a look at your map, and should have some time this coming week. I will let you know when I'm ready ;) --Peter Talk 20:26, 2 June 2012 (EDT)
James its a bit rich you guys deleting my edits when none of you apparently have travelled to Jerusalem, nor are you an experienced traveller. A city is what it is, lets not try to paint it through rose lense glasses. BTW I have been to both Togo and Kyrgyzstan. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rosenthalm (talk • contribs)
I have travelled to Jerusalem 3 times. I have a particular interest in travelling Islamic countries and have covered almost all of central asia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Qatar, Jordan. Whilst travelling in Jerusalem last week I noticed a significant increase in tension and segregation. The only place that I have every witnessed greater tension and segregation is in Osh (Kygyzstan, on the Uzbek border), which was a few months after riots and fighting between the Kygrgs and Uzbeks resulted in the city being burned down. Whilst walking in the old city, the Islamic section was far from welcoming, and in fact I was encouraged on several occassions to walk elsewhere. Whilst my experience can be considered an individual circumstance - I would suspect that this is common but not written.
