I fell in love with the "old city" of Jerusalem which sits within ancient walls in the greater city of Jerusalem.
|You can see the different layers of the wall as it |
was built & repaired through the centuries.
|Deep excavation sights are all around the city.|
|King David's gate|
|This Armenian priest was good natured and happy to take a picture:)|
|We are under the ground on this street!|
|A spice tower!|
|Pink cauliflower...how ever did they do that?|
I adored the architecture, the shop keepers,
and watching my mild mannered Danielle haggle with those shop keepers!
|A jewelry maker, he made me some earrings on the spot!|
|A tailer. |
Most shops are passed to family members and
have been there for generations
|A Muslim cafe|
|We ate a delicicous pizza and spinach pillows|
I came home to find everything at home looking too new, too untested and untried. I have a new respect for a people who keep building every time their city is destroyed. Jerusalem the ancient city is an inspiration to me!
