Jerusalem, the Western Wall, Beit Shean,the stations of the cross and Mount Nebo
We found it fascinating to see so many armed soldiers around. Especially with particularly youthful looks! So much so, that the most gregarious member of our group just had to take a photo with them. They were nice and didn’t shoot him.
We then visited another place pregnant with emotion. The Western Wall, where many Jews came to pray. After which we proceeded to visit the streets of Jerusalem.
It was then time for pulling at Christian hearts, as we retraced the stages of the cross. The path where Jesus carried his cross to where the church of Holy Sepulchre now stands. Where he was nailed and died on the cross.
We then crossed the border to Jordan, visited Jaresh, Mount Nebo and had a bit too much to eat.
The Western Wall
Touching a piece of history
A minuet in the distance
Market in Jerusalem
Streets of Jerusalem
A stage of the cross
The Church of Holy Sepulchre, where Jesus was crucified
A lonely busker in the shadows of the Jerusalem city walls
The entrance to Jaresh
A roman city with crumbling roads
Yet well preserved columns
Mount Nebo, where Moses got to see but not enter the promised land
A memorial to where he stopped
Seeing but never setting foot in the promised land
