– Tuesday, February 2, 2011 –
So, the time to write a big blog is unfortunately just not available. Our days are 10+ hours of touring, so when we get back to the hotel, it’s very difficult to go in-depth with details. However, I feel I should add details and descriptions so that those of you not here can understand what you’re seeing in the videos and the pictures; additionally, I want to remember the specifics years from now when I look back. Therefore, with that thought, I’ve already told Jen that she’s going to sit with me as I provide details and descriptions to each picture in the coming weeks.
With that said, I’ll leave you with a basic layout of what we did and where we went. If I don’t provide enough information, shoot me an email, Facebook message, IM, text, phone call, etc.!
Therefore, here was our lineup today: West Bank: Bethlehem – Church of the Nativity (where Jesus was born) & Shepard’s Field, Mt. Scopus, Mt. of Olives, Garden of Gethsemane, Jerusalem’s Old City – Muslim Quarter Bazaar.
As always, thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy the PHOTOS and videos! Also, you can always get to my Photo Albums by clicking the link at the top of the page that says “PHOTOS”.
A view from atop the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem.
A Muslim minaret calling the Muslims to prayer…5 times a day, all over the country. There’s not just Jews and Christians here but many Arabs whom are also Muslim.
A view of the area that would have been contained within the Garden of Gethesemane at the foot of the Mount of Olives. It also looks similar to the one that Jesus was praying in the night he was turned over to the Jews before his death on the cross.
This is a Bazaar in the Old City of Jerusalem, within the Muslim Quarter.
