    Jerusalem by Ourselves

    November 21, 2019 in Palestine ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    I am including the photos from the light show last night; there were a whole series of images of the history of the castle projected onto the interior of the castle walls. It was absolutely spectacular! We spent a couple of hours this afternoon at the Jewish Market, about a half hour walk from our hotel. We think that the vendors were all Jewish, selling food, fresh produce, clothing and household supplies. Most of the people buying were Jews, wearing a range of clothing from regular western clothing, to men wearing a kipper, to full Orthodox Jews, and everything in between, including some tourists like ourselves. They closed at 3pm, in order to be home by sunset. Grant sat and had a couple of beer while people watching, Sharon wandered around. We relaxed in our hotel room the rest of the afternoon and evening , and will catch an 12:45am shuttle to the airport to fly home tomorrow.Read more
