We kick off our day with a tour of the Old City. After touring many Christian sites, we meet with Sami al- Jundi, author of The Hour of Sunlight.  Later that afternoon we visit the Garden of Gethsemene, climb the Mt. Of Olives ( my back surgeon would have killed me , if Dr. Nitka is reading this blog…just know that I made it and my pain level is only at a 4-5……), visit the Wailing Wall, Southeren Wall, and then tour the Ewstern a Wall tunnels. Amazing day, here’s the photos to enjoy.

  1. Church of the Holy Sepulchre!? It’s so gorgeous, Mom! That’s the church that is said to house the spear that pierced Christ’s side at the crucifixion, right? Racking my brain from Islamic Art History…so happy you’re getting to experience such amazing history and culture. XOXO

  2. Or is it the church built on the land where he was crucified? Can’t wait for you to share your new knowledge with us!
