The wall of the "Youth Hostel" where we stayed

There were a bunch of inexpensive, non-fancy accomodation options

A rest after a long travel day

Everyone has something of wisdom to leave at the Hostel

A moment of romance

Walking down the dark passageways when Jerusalem is mostly closed

We opted for an "expensive" private room (about $30 US) - no Windows!

In case you missed something


Some goodies in the Jerusalem market

The kitties seem to do ok here too

Chickens placed neatly in an un-airconditioned row

Outside, but inside the main walls of course

Parking is allowed but scarce

Nice weather for the end of October

The Armenian gate

Bullet holes in the main exterior wall from a previous conflict

Time for a quick change

A wall to climb

I think its designed to be difficult to perch upon

The room of the "Last Supper"

A nice "secret" garden

From inside the garden looking over a wall

Break time

Me posing

I think this is near King David's tomb

Cool walls

The church of Mary Magdalen

Inside the chamber of the last supper

Another shot of me

The gang

The last warning

A long shot

A decent walkway - but it was hot

A view over modern day Jerusalem

A nice exterior wall view

More exterior
