of gold

Yesterday we decided to break the recent habit of spending saturdays cozying up at home and went with our gang (of 5 families) to visit Jerusalem. We live just in the middle of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv half an hour away from each city but feel at home in Tel Aviv with Jerusalem feeling somewhat like another world. In terms of climate, architecture and population it really feels so different.

a familiar roadside snack

We went to the old city, walking through the old market which mainly caters for tourists, but the colourful displays are always candy to the eye.


We then went to visit the Church of The Holy Sepulchre - an amazing piece of architecture full of stories and decorative details


For lunch we had some great humous and then continued our walk to the western wall.

We came home tired and smiling - and today began a new week.

    Amazing and exotic place, beautiful decorations and photographs (I've often wondered about the culture-shock you must have felt coming from UK).
