There's only one more day of our time in Jerusalem to write about, but I thought before I did that it would be nice to share some of the photos I took that are not OF any one particular thing. They capture the streets of Jerusalem, some odd things we noticed, even some interesting people. Hope you enjoy them!
A LITTLE BIT OF HOME IN THE HOLY CITY. UNLIKE HOME, HOWEVER, THERE ARE SOLDIERS AND HEAVILY ARMED POLICE EVERYWHERE.
MANY OF THE STREETS IN THE OLD CITY ARE NARROW AND COVERED, AND THERE ARE ALWAYS INTERESTING AREAS TO PHOTOGRAPH.
SERIOUSLY, WHOEVER THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA TO RENT SEGWAYS IN JERUSALEM MUST HAVE BEEN INSANE. THE ENTIRE CITY IS COVERED IN STAIRS. AND LOOK -- EVEN ONE OF THE GUYS ON THE BILLBOARD ISN'T HAVING FUN! MAYBE BECAUSE HE KEEPS FALLING DOWN STAIRS?
ON THE OTHER HAND, THIS KID WAS DOING PRETTY WELL ON HIS ROLLERBLADES.
THERE IS ONE AREA WHERE LITTLE JEWISH BOYS ARE ALWAYS PLAYING DODGEBALL (ABOVE AND BELOW). DANGEROUS FOR TOURISTS!
THIS KID JUST REALLY WANTED TO HAVE HIS PICTURE TAKEN.
WE WERE A BIT SURPRISED TO SEE SANTA CLAUS.
OLD MEETS NEW IN A SIDE ROOM OF THE MEDRASA IN THE DOME OF THE ROCK COMPLEX.
THERE ARE SO MANY INTERESTING ASPECTS TO THE COSTUMES MEMBERS OF DIFFERENT GROUPS WEAR IN JERUSALEM. THESE JEWISH HATS ARE REALLY UNUSUAL.
