Old Jerusalem Antique store.

As my wife and I were walking in Old Jerusalem one day, a resident stopped us because he recognized us from being an employee at the Hotel we were staying at. He took us to his brother's antique store, which was worth a visit.

2000 images! That's such a treasure I'd hope you go on postingduringyour enjoyableprocess of sorting out...So far, they give the mood of your travel , indeed. Btw, theolives in the sacks in yourlast shotneed to be scratched with a knife and kept inslightly salted(%2) or fresh water which should be changed at intervals (about two times a week) untill the oliveslose their bitter taste

Yes, you can go in the tomb. What gave me goose bumps was being on this stairway. It leads to the home of the Caiaphas, High Priest. Jesus was lead from the Garden of Gethseminee on the Mount of Olives through the valley and up these stairs. I knelt here and touched the very stones where my Lord walked over 2,000 years ago. Goose bumps - and tears!

This is a view of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives. I believe looking toward the West. Kidron Valley is below and heads off to the left (south).

I guess I would call this the classic view of the Western Wall. The lower courses of stones are litterally mortored toghether with prayers. I left one there - For Peace.

Taken from the Temple Mount - looking East (I think) toward the Mount of Olives - a Russian Orthodox Church.
