Jerusalem – the Old City

Our exploration of the Old City of Jerusalem was quite an eye-opener! To see and experience the diversity of ethnicity, religion, and architecture was excellent. After our orientation walking the walls of the city we were able to explore each of the quarters at some depth. We spoke with local shopkeepers about the city and their religions, and they were very willing to talk! Of course we bought things from them as well.
The people seem to be not very well off, but they seem happy.
We sampled the food (which was very good), bought jewellery and scarves and generally wandered about.
A highlight is seeing the archaeological excavations of the ancient walls of the city, and exhibitions of ancient artefacts.
