Jerusalem

Jerusalem

What an amazing day touring the old city of Jerusalem. We walked through the Jaffa gate though the Armenian quarter to the Jewish quarter. Went to the Burnt house, toured the western wall tunnels, saw the kotel, ended in the Muslim quarter. They had soldiers to escort us back to Jewish quarter but Odelia, our guide had some specials things for us to do instead. We had falafel and salads at an old restaurant in the Arab section. We went to the roof top of the Austrian hospice. Incredible views from the rooftop. We then went to see the Christian sites walking the via Delarosa to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. We then went to The City of David and walked the ancient water tunnels from 2000 years ago. Very cool day! Tonight we will walk the city walls. 20140703-182839-66519343.jpg
